Finovate debuted in New York in 2007. The conference, which showcases banking and financial technology (fintech) innovation, became an instant success. Each event follows the same format – presenters have seven minutes to introduce their company and demo their product live; no slides are allowed.
Starting with Finovate Fall 2007 in New York, much has changed. Two days of demos are now followed by two more days of presentations, fireside chats, and roundtables of industry experts and practitioners (full disclosure). Finovate is also gaining three more editions: in Asia, Middle East, and Africa; and Finovate Europe has moved to the ExCel to enable a larger number of attendees.
