2015 Startup Challenge Finale
Every year, Innotribe brings all finalists selected during the regional showcases of its Startup Challenge programme to Sibos, an annual conference, exhibition and networking event organised by SWIFT for the financial industry. Over the years, Sibos has become the world’s premier financial services event, and is definitely an event not to be missed!
Organised during Sibos, the Finale of this year’s Startup Challenge will take place on Wednesday 14 October in Singapore. It will be the unique opportunity for our 12 early-stage finalists (see list below) selected in London, Cape Town, Singapore and New York to pitch their business ideas to an audience of dozens of decision-makers from the world’s largest financial institutions and banks, entrepreneurs, investors, and also journalists. Remember an early-stage company is less than 3 years old and has less than $1million in combined revenue and investment in the previous 12 months.
The format will be different for the 8 growth-stage finalists. They will not be pitching on stage but will host exhibition booths on the Innotribe Stand, giving live demos of their products to the Sibos delegates along the week. To learn more about these companies – which will be joined by some Alumni who participated to previous Startup Challenges – visit this page.
