The Best of Show votes for FinovateFall 2015 have been cast and counted!  After two days and 70 live demos of the latest in fintech innovation, our attendees have made their opinions known as to which companies have earned the title of “Best of Show” (see footnotes for voting methodology).

This year at FinovateFall, it was the debuting companies that made some of the biggest impressions on our record-setting Finovate audience. Of the eight companies to take home “Best of Show” honors, five of them were making their very first appearance on the Finovate stage.

So with a hearty “Congratulations!” let’s meet the Best of Show winners of FinovateFall 2015 (in alphabetic order):
