FinovateSping 2016 has come to a close. It was a whirlwind couple of days and we had a fantastic time presenting our single-stock, expert-based Robo Advisor to a record-breaking crowd. FinovateSpring 2016 had the highest attendance rate in its history (> 1550), so we wanted to make sure we gave our best!
We are so delighted by the numerous responses from the crowd and the overwhelming, back-to-back visits at our booth. Thank you to all of you who came to learn about meetinvest, it was lovely to meet you all and we surely will stay in touch!
Coming from Switzerland, we love ice hockey, but there was no time to catch a San Jose Sharks playoff game at the SAP Center, as we were fully occupied with all of the Finovate festivities and that is very good!
Here’s a recap on what went on at Finovate in San Jose!
Demo Day: 10th May 2016
After a huge success at FinovateEurope, the folks at meetinvest were rearing to go! We were so honored to have been selected to present once more at FinovateSpring.
Even before finishing the set-up of our booth we had people standing in line wanting to know more about the meetinvest Robo Advisor just before joining the demo area. What a great way to start the day!
9:43AM – Showtime! We were one of the first of 72 presenters due to demo at FinovateSpring. Some people say that the early bird gets the worm. Judging from the crowd’s reaction, they might agree with that statement.
As any performer will tell you, it can be rather daunting to be part of the opening act. You are setting the tone of the rest of the performance. We believe our product is the future of FinTech, so what better way to kick off the leading FinTech event than to present our next generation Robo Advisor.
One of the key pillars we have built our business on is ‘simplicity’, so when Michel took center stage, he did a fantastic job presenting our clear white label solution for financial institutions in just 7 minutes!
Watch out for the demo video featuring CIO & Co-Founder Michel Jacquemai that will be made available on the Finovate archives blog soon.
Intermissions + Breaks:
During the intermissions and breaks, we had the chance to talk to lots of interested visitors at our booth.
Here’s Maria Jacquemai, CEO and Co-Founder and Michel Jacquemai at our booth just when everybody was back inside the demo room. Warren Buffet was also there to support, albeit in mask form. He is one the 30 expert legends on our Robo. Maria and Michel were keen and excited to share more about the white label version of meetinvest with guests at the booth!
Of course, while we were hoping to get some crowd at our booth after the demo, we certainly did not anticipate being flooded by so many visitors during the day. The stack of business cards and follow-up requests exceeded our FinovateEurope attendance in London and is once again a proof that our single-stock Robo feeds a need in the financial industry!
The entire networking session was spent meeting and speaking to many potential high-level partners. It is true when they say that Finovate is truly where you realize new potential revenue streams and business opportunities!
It was simply brilliant to receive so many positive and encouraging feedbacks from the crowd – we are humbled by companies who have expressed interests from all over the world.
We cannot wait to see what the future holds for meetinvest and its potential partners!
Carrying on the Momentum:
No rest for the wicked! In just a few days we will be presenting at Temenos Community Forum (TCF) in Barcelona, an event for which, in order to be a presenter at the final, you had to win one of the four regional Temenos JAM competitions. We won the competition in Singapore.
Over 1’000 bankers are expected to attend this fantastic event in the North-East coast of Spain where executives can not only meet but learn about innovation and what is changing the industry. Be sure to check out our blog page for updates on how things are shaping up for that event!
Till next time,
