Why the Finovate audience is unique

Meet people that matter to you.
Meet people that matter to you.

At FinovateWest you only meet people who matter. 

We’ve built our events around and for:

  • senior innovators leading the fintech revolution
  • senior decision-makers from leading financial institutions
  • senior investors from VC firms looking for their next opportunity.
Quality. Not just quantity.
Quality. Not just quantity.

Finovate audiences are unlike those at a lot of fintech events where the apparently high attendee numbers are padded by junior staff and others with limited influence on the direction of their business.

Those high numbers may look impressive, but it makes it much more challenging to find people you really want to speak with. 

And if you do find someone interesting, you’ll have to compete with thousands of others for their time and attention.

Your time is precious. Don't waste it.
Your time is precious. Don't waste it.

Don’t waste your time working out who the right people are for you to meet.

Come to FinovateWest to talk with the senior-level decision-makers who can actually move the needle for you and your company.

This is how we help you connect with them.
