At this point, you're wondering how I can possibly connect Finovate and the Olympics, right?
The Olympics are exciting to watch, fast-paced, and unpredictable. The best athletes (chosen through a competitive process) taking the stage to show off the skills they've worked so hard on. We tune in, hour after hour, day after day, because we just never know what we'll get to see next. Will we see history being made?
Attending Finovate is like that too. The best fintech entrepreneurs and technologists (chosen through a competitive process) taking the stage to demo the innovations they've worked so hard on. All in seven minutes or less with no slides allowed! What will we get to see debut before anyone else? How will it shape the future of fintech? (Will the presenters finish in under 7 minutes?)
Exciting to watch. Fast-paced. Unpredictable. And, dare I say it, pretty fun.
FinovateFall 2012, our flagship event, is coming up in just five weeks in Manhattan. The show has an amazing lineup of presenters committed to demo their latest innovations to a packed audience. Seats are filling up fast, so please get your ticket soon to guarantee your spot.
We'll see you in New York in September (or Singapore in November)! And until then, enjoy the daily drama unfolding in London!
