The FinovateWest VIP Program

A community, designed to foster business relationships with the most senior industry players, and create environments for networking and peer led benchmarking.

Starting from your initial contact with our VIP Relationship Manager, through to the welcome onsite, helping you build long term symbiotic relationships is our key focus. To help to maximize every minute at FinovateWest, our team designed a schedule of tailor-made events and personal introductions that will help you make new contacts, discover new international solutions and surround yourself with people who'll inspire you.

The VIP Experience:


Smart networking

Join 1300+ senior financial and banking executives, venture capitalists, press, industry analysts, bloggers, regulators and entrepreneurs from the Bay Area and beyond. This isn’t your typical trade show floor. It’s your chance to speak directly to innovators behind the most exciting tech in finance. And meet people from financial institutions and VC firms interested in using or investing in it.

Curated one-on-one meetings

The cornerstone of our networking services are our curated one-on-ones. These are bespoke, pre-arranged meetings especially designed to reduce the time you spend on selecting new partners, to forge new relationships for future projects and enable better understanding of connected technology. Brella - our new matchmaking tool - makes it even easier to connect with the people that matter most to you.

Group networking activities - power hours

Our innovative format allows you to meet with multiple senior executives in order to discuss current projects and future challenges in a light hearted and informal way. You will be joined by specially selected technology leaders, speakers, analysts and solution providers.

Small group discussions - Friday, May 10th

Experts will lead discussions on topical subjects; groups will be small to allow for real interaction. The discussions will be run under the Chatham House Rule to allow for truly open dialogue. Choose from:

  • How incumbents can successfully collaborate with fintechs to accelerate change.
  • Challenges in the insurance industry & how insurtech could solve them.
  • Why regtech could be truly transformative?
  • Maximizing digital adoption – do customers want what we are building?
  • Capturing the huge millennial opportunity.
  • The internet of things – why the future is another country.
  • How can traditional financial advisers remain relevant in a sea of personal financial management apps?
  • Quantum computing - the wave of the future?


Stay ahead on fintech innovation.

FinovateSpring features 2 full days of short-form demos.

60+ demoing companies will show you their latest innovations live. Each presenter has just 7 minutes – with no slides or video allowed. So you see live technology with no filler.

We handpick each company on stage, and they all give you a live demo - so you only see technology that works today


On day three, expert speakers will analyze the latest trends, opportunities and challenges. Leave with dozens of new ideas for your future product roadmap and strategic planning. Hear from Wells Fargo, Citi, Prudential, Radius Bank, Alliant Credit Union, Umpqua Bank and many more.
