Reverse Pitch: Why you (fintech) should take my money (VC)!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It is standard practice to push the fledgling startup into the lions’ den: forcing them to summarise their life’s work into 3-minute pitches before deep-pocketed investors and corporates tear their business models apart. But what happens when the roles are reversed? Join us to see VCs and CVCs in the hotseat. The pressure is on for venture capitalists to justify why startups should take their money and prove that their expertise and FinTech nous is worth the time of our panel of FinTech judges.
