Our record-breaking audience has spent a hot two days in San Jose watching 68 demos covering the best in fintech.

After watching the 68 demoing companies show off their newest innovations on stage in front of the sold-out auditorium, the crowd voted for their three favorite demos at the end of each day. The eight companies with the highest number of votes were crowned winners.

Here they are in alphabetical order:

Motif Investing, for its Advisor Platform that streamlines the way advisors build, monitor, and rebalance investment portfolios

Ondot Systems, for its CardControl technology that allows users to remotely control their credit and debit cards via their smartphone


PrivatBank, for topless, contactless smartphone-enabled Android ATM technology


SaveUp, for its Gen Y/Millennial-oriented solution that combines gamification with personal finance


Stockpile, for their “give the gift of stock” solution that helps people invest in the brands they love  

As always, thanks for your continued support. See you next year at FinovateSpring 2015!
All of the demo videos will be available on in two weeks.


Notes on methodology:  
1. Only audience members NOT associated with demoing companies were eligible to vote. Finovate employees did not vote.     
2. Attendees were encouraged to note their favorites during each day. At the end of the last demo, they chose their three favorites.    
3. The exact written instructions given to attendees: “Please rate (the companies) on the basis of demo quality and potential impact of the innovation demoed.”  
4. The eight companies appearing on the highest percentage of submitted ballots were named Best of Show.
