FinovateEurope 2016 in the Press


We’re surfing a wave of momentum from FinovateEurope last week. The sold-out show, dubbed by Business Insider as the “debutante ball for innovative financial technology startups,” featured new fintech from 70 companies. The ideas that flowing from onstage offered analysts, bloggers, and press plenty to write about.

If you missed it, you can check out our live coverage on Twitter.
