Only at Finovate
Demoing companies are at the center of Finovate events, with two days spotlighting dozens of new technologies. And these aren't just short-handed pitches; they're real product demos.
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.
Finovate's record of successful events spans 14+ years, built on four core principles:
Demoers have the attention of hundreds of senior fintech leaders during their digital demos and at their virtual demo booths. Demoers can “go live” to engage with many attendees at their booth, schedule virtual one-to-one meetings, and break off into chat rooms with select groups for deeper dives.
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 curates the demo lineup from hundreds of inquiries across the full the breadth of new financial services technology. So there's something for everyone in the audience that they need to see.
Demoing is 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. In addition, there's lifetime coverage of company news, awards and wins to Finovate’s 350,000+ yearly website visitors, 11,000+ newsletter subscribers and 41,000+ social media network.
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.
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? Being 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.
