Discover the future of banking

Discover brings together innovation stakeholders from across the financial ecosystem to drive connections and collaborative innovation. Participants can network with cutting-edge fintech firms from around the world, alongside bank innovation labs, trade associations and fintech accelerators, gaining valuable insight from the innovators shaping the future of finance.

Alongside the exhibition space, Discover features the dedicated Swift Innotribe conference programme, moderated by well-known voices from the fintech ecosystem, plus the highly competitive Perfect Pitch and Swift Hackathon contests.

Swift Innotribe

At the heart of Discover, Swift Innotribe will take participants back to the future with fresh perspectives on technology, society and our digital tomorrow.

A ‘conference within a conference’, Innotribe 2023 will bring a new twist to the much-loved ‘Future of Money’ panel, and new session formats delving into topics such as central bank digital currencies, the future of sustainability and breakthroughs in AI and quantum.

Discover Stage

The Discover Stage provides the Sibos innovation community with an opportunity to present thought leadership on topics spanning the digital finance landscape to drive the connections and collaborative innovation required to future-proof the industry.

Networking events

Networking is at the heart of Discover and curated events throughout the week provide participants with the opportunity to engage with industry experts and thought leaders.

Perfect Pitch

The much-loved Perfect Pitch competition returns for its fourth year, and a selection of emerging fintechs will battle it out in a live final during Sibos week. Fintechs will compete across three streams - Leadership, Partnership, and Society & Sustainability.

The winners will be determined by a panel of expert judges and audience voting, and rewarded with exclusive access to venture capitalists, banks and corporates, and promotion of their company and solutions on Sibos TV and social media channels.

The competition will open for entry in June – follow our social channels for all the updates!

The live final will take place on the final day of Sibos 2023. Last year more than 150 developers took part and this year’s participants are once again sure to impress with their innovation and creativity.
