Why Finovate?

Finovate's successful events are built on a few core principles:


The focus of Finovate events. Demos are shown on the main stage in the general session -- 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.


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.


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.


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.

2500+ Track Record

Finovate is known for curating innovative technology showcases, and some of the most recognizable names in fintech and tech have debuted at Finovate since 2007.

They are companies that grew into magical unicorns, were acquired in game-changing deals, raised jaw-dropping funding rounds, and more.


Leading companies and brands are championing financial inclusion, diversity, and sustainability to drive the change they want to see in the world. 

That’s exactly why Finovate launched a scholarship program for sustainable fintech: To highlight and help the individuals and companies driving fintech forward through sustainable and equitable practices.

CEO & Founder


Simply the best financial technology conference there is. The interest from financial institutions in our product was overwhelming. Plus, the ability to communicate with innovative technology leaders who actually understand and appreciate all of the effort entrepreneurs go through in building technology solutions in very challenging regulatory and security driven environments was a very rewarding experience for us.
