Discover Perfect Pitch
Sibos 2023 hosted the fourth 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.
The competition included three streams:
- Ambitious Adventurers are entrepreneurs that dare to tread where nobody has been before. Participants entering this stream best be prepared to show the judges just how big their vision is!
