Fintechs Pitch LIVE - in association with Mastercard

In our new and energy-packed Fintechs Pitch LIVE in association with Mastercard, we invited Fintech start-ups to compete to identify the most exciting and most innovative new technology or service in the Payments sector.

The EPA wanted to recognise the companies that are set to revolutionise how people move, manage and spend their money. Judged by an international panel of experts from the investment community, each company had 5 minutes to impress our judging panel (which includes some of the biggest venture capital names) followed by 5 minutes of Q&A.

The prize? Not only have the pitchers elevated their profile and positioned their company as the next big thing in the industry, but the winners also received a FREE membership to the Emerging Payments Association community and a feature in our Fintechs Pitch LIVE Winners eBook, authored by The Fintech Power 50.

The sessions were broadcasted on the main stage of the PAY360 Digital event and all the on-demand pitches are hosted on the EPA website.
