Sibos 2021 sees the second 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.
Entrants can select from nine categories across three streams – Leadership, Society & Sustainability and Partnership & Collaboration. Fintechs will have to make an upfront decision by selecting which category best aligns to their business, values and principles.
Sibos is only accepting entries for Discover Perfect Pitch from fintechs that have a demonstrable business proposition and have a funding stage between Series A and D. To enter, fintechs complete a short pre-qualification questionnaire, providing basic details including:
• Company name and website
• Investment raised to date
• Status of core technology solution
• Team size
Those who qualify for the competition will be asked to answer a series of questions and submit a pitch video to be evaluated by a panel of experts from across the financial industry, from banks, to venture capitalists, futurists and innovators. The panel will select the best nine entries for the live final, hosted on 13 October 2021, the Wednesday of Sibos week.
The winners of Discover Perfect Pitch receive exclusive roundtable access to venture capitalists, connections with banks, interviews on SibosTV and promotion through the Sibos App and Sibos Insider platform.
The prizes focus on boosting businesses by delivering access to people and markets. They are designed to accelerate business development, with SWIFT supporting with access and introductions to the right people, including unprecedented visibility and specialist business support from its partners.
