Goldilocks and the Three Finovates

With three Finovate conferences this fall, find the one that’s just right for your new finech.

Finovates are for public companies, startups, and established leaders with new financial services innovations. Past demos have included technology focused on customer experience, regtech, insurtech, proptech, healthtech, wealthtech, security, identity, biometrics, blockchain, crypto, investment, onboarding, open banking, digital banking, lending, payments, and more.

Demoing companies are at the core of the conference series, which is designed to give them the best return on their demo investment with a 360 degree approach:

BEFORE

DURING

AFTER

So how do you know which conference is right for you this fall? By region — North America, Asia or Middle East.

Are you expanding services or solutions to one of these places? Announcing new partnerships or targeting key customers? Graduating from an accelerator with your sights set on raising funding or attracting clients? Apply to demo at the Finovate in the region where you want to do business.

The earlier you get on board the bigger the return on demo investment. So apply to an upcoming event now:

Moving Home: FinovateSpring Returns to San Francisco

Like many millennials, Finovate’s west coast conference is moving back home. San Francisco is FinovateSpring’s birthplace, where it tested limits in infancy and navigated angsty adolescent years. Only after maturing and outgrowing its room, did FinovateSpring move out. But San Francisco has always been home.

Now considered the flagship Finovate format, the conference agenda on May 7-11 will include an exploration of artificial intelligence and customer service on the summit day, two demo days with 60+ financial services products, and a final day to bring everything together with a series of keynotes, panels and sessions.

Tickets for the summit day (May 7) and the main conference (May 8-11) are on sale at early-bird rates. And if you would like to enhance your FinovateSpring experience beyond simply attending, there are a few ways to get involved (see details below). In whatever way, we hope you’ll join us for our homecoming!

Demoing

Companies working on new technology in investment, insurance, compliance, customer experience, regtech, insurtech, wealthtech, security, identity, biometrics, blockchain, crypto, onboarding, open banking, digital banking, lending and payments should apply to demo. Don’t see your fintech’s concentration area on the list? Even better!

Showcasing your latest innovation is the best way to reach the greatest number of people who mean the most to your business in the least amount of time. It’s essentially a sales demo, press conference, analyst briefing, trade show, and business development meeting in just a few days. And unlike other events, our 360 degree approach means attendees vie for demoing companies’ attention, not the other way around.

The deadline to apply to demo is on Friday, February 1. More information is available on the event website and you can reach us at spring@finovate.com.

Sponsoring & Speaking

Sponsoring and speaking are terrific ways to raise your profile and showcase your thought leadership. The sponsorship team provides flexible and tailored solutions to maximize your time at the conference and ensure you meet your business goals. They routinely work with a variety of businesses, including banks and credit union, consulting companies, VCs and investment firms, educational institutions, law firms, and tech companies.

The ABCs of FinovateEurope Innovation

As 2018 moves into the rearview and 2019 starts to take shape, financial services innovation shows no signs of slowing. At this rapid pace, there has to be at least one category of innovation per letter of the alphabet: A is for artificial intelligence, B is for blockchain, C is for compliance, D is for digital identity, E is for ethereum, F is for financial inclusion, and so on twenty more times. That’s a lot to keep up with.

Finovate’s mission has always been to cut to the core of innovation. We cover fintech for you by reviewing hundreds of services and solutions from across the fintech spectrum, then distilling them into 65+ demos featuring exciting technology with real-world applications. In just two days, you see what’s new, trending, accepted, and contentious.

The demoing companies that will take the stage in February at FinovateEurope reflect financial technology as of today and down the road. We hope you join us for this journey! Tickets to FinovateEurope are available online. Save £700 when you book before this Friday, November 30.

The ROI of a Finovate Demo

Deciding how to best use your marketing budget is a big decision driven by three small letters: ROI. And for fintech companies pushing the envelope, Finovate is the event where you get maximized return on your investment, or what we call Return on Demo Investment (RODI).

Most conferences stick you on a 4- or 5-person panel in a faraway breakout room later in the day. If you don’t tweet your own selfie, there’s not a record of you even being there.

At Finovate, product demos are THE focus. You are the star of the show. You take center stage to address the entire audience. You hold court in your own turnkey booth. And the audience — financial services execs, analysts, VCs and bloggers — all want to talk to you. That’s RODI.

But your RODI starts well before the event:

  • When the upcoming cohort of demoing companies is announced, fintech investors and buyers pay attention because they know you’ve been vetted through a competitive application process.
  • We showcase your company with emails to our 60,000-person database, blog posts to our 350,000 visitors, as well as tweets to 40,000 followers.
  • We work with you to refine your message through 1-on-1 coaching sessions and a full dress rehearsal.

And your RODI doesn’t stop when the event does. Your demo video is hosted indefinitely at finovate.com/videos while our analysts keep you in the spotlight with articles about future funding rounds, product launches, awards, acquisitions and other notable news.

But don’t believe us, see what our alums have to say about the RODI here.

The earlier you get on board the bigger the RODI. So apply to an upcoming event now:

 

Finovate First: Three Events this Fall

For over 10 years, Finovate has been the leading showcase of financial, banking and payments technologies. Following the trail of fintech innovation has led us across the globe to New York in 2007, Bay Area in 2008, London in 2010, Singapore in 2012, Hong Kong in 2016, Dubai earlier this year, and now Cape Town in November.

And for the first time this fall, Finovate has three events in three months — September, October, November.

Whether you’re planning to join as an attendee, demoing company, sponsor, or speaker, there are a few things to keep in mind before heading out for the summer holidays.

First, conference tickets are on sale now. For all event days, tickets cover everything from mainstage demos and keynote speakers to track session panels and fireside chats to exhibition booths and networking.

Next, apply now to demo your new fintech innovation. Over the past several years, fintech has expanded to include not just financial and banking technology, but also payments, wealth management, lending, investment, insurance, security, compliance, and regulation tools and tech. And our audiences want to see it all.

Finovate events give demoing companies a powerful platform to promote their new fintech, drive production adoption and partnerships, find new funding, establish technical leadership, garner press recognition, and more. Participating in events is an investment of time and resources, and we set up our events to give presenters as much return on that investment as we can.

Lastly, align your brand with fintech innovation by sponsoring the event. This can be done alone or in conjunction with demoing at an event. Sponsorships often include a speaking opportunity on one of our track panels, introductions with hard-to-access executives, interactive webinars, exhibition booths, etc.

More information and links to all events are available at finovate.com. Inquiries and questions can be sent to info@finovate.com. Rest up this summer for a busy Finovate fall!
