High-Impact Networking

Meet the people who matter to you

We’ve structured FinovateSpring to make it easy for you to connect with the influential attendees, speakers, sponsors and demoers. And you can use Brella, a new matchmaking tool to help. Here’s a step-by-step guide to making the most of your FinovateSpring networking experience.


Once you’ve registered, you’ll gain access to event app and networking platform, Brella. Take a look at your fellow attendees and think about who you’d like to meet.

Note you must be a registered attendee to take advantage of these opportunities. If you’re not already registered, click here.


Set up your profile in Brella, and let the matchmaking algorithm recommend people to connect with. The more complete your profile is, the more helpful the tool will be.


Reach out to other attendees through Brella, and start a conversation. Brella helps you schedule meetings before, during and after the conference and will stay live to the end of May. It's also easy to politely decline meeting requests that aren’t interesting to you.


When you arrive at the event, there's plenty of opportunities to network - see the schedule below. The networking set up makes it easy to start a conversation organically. There's also a dedicated space for meetings set up through Brella if you want to make use of it.


After the event, follow up with your connections. If there's anyone you weren’t able to meet on site, you can still use Brella to connect with them. You'll also receive contact information for every presenting company, making it easy to connect with the innovators who caught your eye.
