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.

If you're working on something new, apply now.

Why Finovate?

Finovate's successful events are built on four core principles:

Focus

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.

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.

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.

Best of Show

At every Finovate conference, the audience chooses the companies that win "Best of Show" -- a handful of companies who made an outstanding impression with their demo.
