The city has all of the key elements needed to drive fintech innovation, including strong governmental support, an atmosphere of collaboration - both between incumbents/startups and tech/finance - and a deep pool of talented individuals from all over the world.

Join us as to explore this gateway to new markets across Southeast Asia and beyond. We’re sure you’ll be glad you did.

35+ live product demos

FinovateAsia features 35+ demoing companies showing you their latest innovations live. Each presenter has just 7 minutes – with no slides or video allowed. So you see live technology with no filler. 

Last year's demos featured services and solutions in open banking, alternative credit scoring, user authentication, virtual agents, payments, SMB banking, investment, loyalty and rewards. Not only is there something for everyone in attendance, this diversity creates an influential audience for demoers.

Of those selected, 50% are startups, 60% are Finovate company debuts, 50% are launching new technology, and 50% are headquartered in Asia (with the rest from Australia, Europe, Middle East, US).

Key topics will include the future of fintech in Asia, emerging Asian markets, the impact of regulation and digital transformation to insurtech, investech; payments, lending , virtual banking, AI and blockchain applications.
