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!
This year, the 12 early-stage finalists (see the list here) selected in London, Cape Town, Singapore and New York will participate to the Finale taking place on Wednesday 14 October in Singapore. They will be pitching 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.
The format will be different for the 8 growth-stage finalists. They will not be pitching on stage, but host exhibition booths on the Innotribe Stand, giving live demos of their products to the Sibos delegates along the week. Remember a growth-stage company is more than 3 years old, or has more than $1million in combined revenue and investment in the previous 12 months.
Here is the list of the growth-stage finalists exhibiting in Singapore. They will be joined by some Innotribe alumni who participated to previous Startup Challenges.
