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:

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.

Finovate Heads East this Fall

For the first time, Finovate heads east for three events this fall. Each event features a unique agenda focusing on regional financial services trends and technology, plus insights and analysis of fintech on a global scale.

With FinovateFall less than a month away, the complete roster of 80+ demoing organizations, including stealth companies, is now available online. With the amount of interest in AI right now, you can expect to see many products and services focusing on chatbots, virtual agents, and business intelligence on stage. 

The FinovateAsia demo lineup has recently grown to include two stealth companies and other exciting additions. See a preview of their efforts here.

Additional demoers and speakers will be announced throughout September. In the meantime, check out key speakers from Alipay, WeLab, ANZ, Startupbootcamp and more.

This week we’re also happy to announce the first wave of demoers for the launch of FinovateAfrica. From insurance coverage for crops using satellite imagery to a move for open banking, these companies illustrate the unique fintech emerging from Africa to address equally unique needs.

More information on these fall events and how to get involved is available at Finovate.com.

Ninety-Nine Problems But Innovation Isn’t One

We’ve asked our FinovateFall demo companies to use a Mad Libs fill-in-the blank format to describe themselves in order to get to the heart of the matter: What have they built? What problems are they solving and for whom? And, finally, how do they do it?

The demoing companies that will take the stage this September at FinovateFall 2018 reflect some of the most impressive innovations in financial technology today. And we can’t wait to tell you more about them. Remember that tickets to FinovateFall are available online. Save $600 when you book before this Friday, July 20.
