FInovate's high-impact networking

Meet the people who matter to you

We’ve structured FinovateFall to make it easy for you to connect with the influential speakers, sponsors and demoers that our events bring together. With lots of dedicated networking time and a smart matchmaking tool that works for both physical and digital attendees, it’s never been easier to start a conversation with the right person.

Start networking before the event

We’ll open up the networking app well before the event starts so you can create a profile and start getting to know your fellow attendees. You can even pre-arrange meetings with like-minded individuals to make sure that your networking starts on the right foot.

Efficiently connect with innovators

Finovate's signature short-form, live-demo format makes it very easy to quickly see a large number of innovations - you can easily connect with the innovators behind them afterwards. We break up the demos with lots of networking time so you can meet the people and companies that caught your interest.

Enhance your networking

The ConnectMe app helps you grow your network. You'll receive your login details before the event so by the time it begins, you can have a full schedule of meetings set up. Watch the video to find out more.

  • Fill in your profile and use the matchmaking tool to find attendees with similar interests
  • View the full delegate list and filter it to find the people you are most interested in meeting
  • Add new contacts and message them using the live chat function
  • Schedule live meetings with your contacts
  • Take the event with you – use your delegate bag to collect digital content from exhibitors and sessions to further your knowledge and refer to later.

How our matchmaking app helps you

As you fill out your attendee profile in our networking app, you'll be able to select from a variety of attendee types and subject matter interests. Our smart algorithm will search the attendees for you to suggest people you may want to connect with. If you see someone you'd like to meet, you reach out to them through the app to make contact or schedule a meeting in our dedicated meeting area.

Stick around for a drink

Prefer to network the old fashioned way? We've got you covered. Each day ends with a happy hour and networking session, where you can connect with attendees. Drinks are on us!

Find like-minded attendees

The event agenda breaks into multiple stages, giving you a chance to dive deeper into topics that interest you most. You'll join like-minded attendees in your stage, so save some business cards.

Finovate Awards – September 12, 2023

The fifth annual Finovate Awards will be held on September 12. Celebrating fintech's brightest stars and recognizing the companies driving innovation forward and the individuals who are bringing new ideas to life.

Follow up after the event

After the event, follow up with your new connections. 

The platform will stay open for one week after the event finishes.

So if there's anyone you weren’t able to connect with during the week you can still use the platform to connect with them.
