How it works

The submissions are now being evaluated. The top 18 will be put to a public vote where the whole industry will be able to watch the pitches and vote for their favourite*. Voting opens on the 22nd November 2021. The industry vote will then be weighted along with the votes cast by our judging panel. 

The top 3 will get to pitch LIVE to our panel of judges, in person at PAY360, on the 22nd March with the session live streamed to our international online audience

The candidates will then be put under pressure in a Dragon’s Den style Q&A by our judges who will decide on the winner. Find out who’s won at the end of the day.

*Ts & Cs – You and your employees cannot vote for your own company.  Only 1 vote per person will be counted and only if a valid corporate email address is provided. By submitting an entry and sending in your video pitch you agree to allow us to publish and use it as we feel appropriate in our promotion of the Fintech’s Pitch Live and PAY360. 

Here’s what last year’s winners had to say…

“Thrilled to be named the winner of Fintech’s Pitch Live in association with Mastercard, at PAY360 2021. We were up against some really inventive companies, so to be recognised as the most exciting, and most innovative new technology in the Payments sector is a real privilege. The win also validated our belief that Embedded Finance is going to revolutionise businesses in non-financial services sectors, and become as ubiquitous as e-commerce is today. Becoming members of The Emerging Payments Association (EPA) has offered Weavr the opportunity to not only meet like minded individuals and organisations, but to feel part of a community and get involved in industry wide projects.”

Anna Carless, Head of Marketing, Weavr

“We’re delighted to join the EPA, which we are sure will be an invaluable source of support to Tred as we launch and scale up over the coming year. We look forward to learning from our peers in the Association, and are excited to contribute to the discussions and events which form such a big part of this community.”
