Thumbnail image for FinovateEuropeButtonicon(highres).jpg

Your plan to binge watch “House of Cards” just got a little more complicated.

The videos from FinovateEurope 2014 are now available in our Video Archive section. Two full days of demos. 67 presentations. More than 470 minutes of fintech innovation. No gorilla suits or no-look, laptop tosses this time around. But the two-day event did feature an entertaining performance by a precocious young investor, a pair of innovators in motorcycle helmets, and a Russian supermodel.

And if all that doesn’t whet your appetite, here’s a look at the demo videos from the nine companies awarded Best of Show honors this year. Click the image to go to the video page.

Enjoy!
