Best of the best fintech competition

Discover Perfect Pitch

Sibos 2024 will host the fifth edition of the Discover Perfect Pitch competition, a challenge with a twist giving fintechs from around the globe the opportunity to showcase their products and services to the Sibos community.

Fintechs will compete across three new streams:

  • Banking and payments: For established or emerging players in the delivery of secure, trustable and reliable banking and payment services.
  • Innovation and inclusion: For companies either small or scaling up, that are having or will have a significant, positive impact on the financial industry and the people it serves.
  • Currencies, tokens and wallets: This stream highlights those doing something unique, or working with an incumbent, to craft new ways to understand value and exchange.

Participating fintechs should register their interest by Friday 28 June.  

Entrants who qualify will then be invited to select the category best aligned to their business, values and principles. There are three categories per stream. 

At this stage qualifying fintechs will also be asked to respond to six questions about their business and submit a pitch video.  

Our expert panel, including bankers, venture capitalists, futurists and innovators, will then select three finalists for each stream to present in the live final on Wednesday 23 October.  

Fantastic opportunities and access for fintechs

The final features jury and audience voting, and the winners of each stream will be rewarded with introductions to our sponsors and their contacts, coverage by select media partners, and promotion on Sibos TV, and Sibos social media channels.

The prizes are designed to boost the winners' businesses by delivering access to people and markets. They accelerate business strategy and growth, with Swift providing access and introductions to key individuals, while our partners provide invaluable visibility and specialised business support.
