During 4 days, Innotribe explored the edges of our ecosystem, giving a preview of innovations that could impact the future of the financial industry. Each day focused on a particular set of phase-changes, disruptions and innovations: crypto-currencies, network effects, innovation capabilities, and the FinTech ecosystem. We looked at them from all angles and offered a comprehensive reflection to our audience.
For all information related to the different sessions, the speakers, and the finalists of the Startup Challenge, you can download the Innotribe@Sibos brochure.
Here is an overview of the different sessions we ran over the week:
All sessions took place in the InnoTRIBE space designed with multiple stages and physical bridges to make the connections happen.
Certainly one of the top moments of this year’s Innotribe @ Sibos, the Grand Finale of our 2014 Startup Challenge competition took place on Wednesday 1 October.
The team ran 3 regional showcases in London, Singapore and New York to find the top 15 companies – 9 early-stage startups and 6 growth-stage innovators – who pitched their business ideas in exactly 6 minutes.

Throughout the week, the InnoTRIBE stand welcomed all Sibos delegates and gave them multiple opportunities to network:
- a demo zone – to watch fast paced pitches from our alumni and selected partners
- a greenhouse – to give you the chance to have more formal discussions and meetings with our alumni, and also the 15 companies who made it through to the 2014 Startup Challenge Grand Finale
- individual stations – to get in-depth product demos from our alumni, and news about their latest business developments
