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.

Is the technology new or with material developments? Do you have a substantial announcement about expanding your technology's reach?
Is the approach original and innovative? How big of a technological/logical leap does it make?
What is the potential to make an impact? Disrupt the market?
Does it make us sit up and take notice?
What other applications are in the same space? Different is good.
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.
Head of Partnerships
FinovateSpring 2023 was a wonderful event. The level of talent, companies, attendees, and production was very high. I was floored by the production value, from photography, to main stage set-up and execution, to the organization of the demonstrations. The organizers truly care about the audience experience and that is rare. The event was not transactional but felt incredibly supportive to the industry and to the fintech community. I would highly recommend demoing a product with Finovate or simply attending to take in the content. You will not be disappointed.
