Demo your latest innovation

We select demoers based on new financial services innovations, whether established leaders in the space or brand-new startups.

In-person and digital demo opportunities available.

Only at Finovate


FinovateEurope is heading back to London in March 2022. If you're working on something new, make sure to apply to demo soon.

Demoing companies are at the center of Finovate events, and FinovateEurope will spotlight 50+ new technologies digitally and physically. And these aren't just short-handed pitches; they're real product demos.

As financial services expand, so does the featured technology. Demo lineups are curated for diversity, to offer something for everyone. 

Past demos have included technology focused on security, identity, investment, wealthtech, lending, compliance, regtech, insurtech, open banking, digital and mobile banking, payments, and more.

Watch the video to hear from some of the FinovateEurope 2020 demoers.

BEST OF SHOW


Finovate is known for curating innovative technology showcases worthy of main stage attention. Yet, some demos have a way of creating a special connection with the audience, and these are the ones that win the highly-coveted Best of Show awards.

Some of the most recognizable names in fintech and tech debuted at Finovate and took home this honor. These are companies that grew into magical unicorns, were acquired in game-changing deals, raised jaw-dropping funding rounds, and more. See them here.

Catch up with the 2020 winners to the left. And learn more about the FinovateEurope 2021 winners, including Dbilia, Proptee, and Quantum Metric here

Why Finovate?

Whether physical or digital, Finovate's successful events are built on four core principles:

Focus

The focus of Finovate events. Demos are shown as part of the main agenda -- not in a track or the exhibition area like at other events. And lineups are curated for diversity and selectivity. Because of this, demoers have the attention of hundreds of senior fintech decision-makers at the event.

Format

Only demos. No shorthand pitches, no slides, and no videos allowed. A live demo is the best way to show your potential buyers, partners and investors how your tech can benefit them.

Selectivity

Finovate builds the demo lineup from hundreds of inquiries across the full breadth of new financial services technology. Lineups are curated for diversity, to offer something for everyone in the audience, something that they need to see. 

Past demos have included technology focused on digital transformation, digital and mobile banking, payments, security, identity, investment, wealthtech, lending, compliance, regtech, insurtech and more.

Exposure

A powerful platform to find customers, network with peers, raise funding and discover partners. This includes exposure to hundreds of senior fintech leaders during the event and to 100,000s of fintech professionals via pre-event marketing. Add to that, lifetime coverage of company news, awards and wins by Finovate analysts to our robust community.

Selection Criteria

Finovate conferences are open to startup, established and public companies with new financial services technology. This results in a highly competitive selection process. Hundreds of inquiries and applications are reviewed when selecting the demo lineup.  

While you may be contacted for more information, most companies are chosen based solely on their application. Please ensure the application is filled out as completely as possible with the below criteria in mind. 

Development

Is the technology new or with material developments? Do you have a substantial announcement about expanding your technology's reach?

Originality

Is the approach original and innovative? How big of a technological/logical leap does it make?

Potential

What is the potential to make an impact? Disrupt the market?

Wow Factor

Does it make us sit up and take notice?

Diversity

What other applications are in the same space? Different is good.

Entry Date

Selections are made on a rolling basis -- the earlier you apply, the more likely to be selected. If we're seeing clusters of similar solutions, application date may be the tiebreaker.

Proptee

Holding the winning trophy in my hands gives me satisfaction, but it's only a tiny part of what we got out of the Finovate event. The new VC and partnership contacts will be beneficial in the future of Proptee. Also, European expansion just became a lot easier.
