The future of fintech is here!

Fintech is no longer about digitizing existing financial products. It’s about integrating financial services into applications and services you use every day. Discover the latest trends and technologies from the best minds in fintech at the Canadian Fintech 2.0 Summit. This time, we’re making it a two-day event. It’s going to be bigger and better than ever before!

Day 1—Tuesday, April 17

We’ll kick things off with Pitch Battle—a day where 40 of the best fintech start-ups tackling solutions in AI, capital markets, lending, accounting, payments and more, will compete for a chance to win an investment prize of over $100,000!

Day 2—Wednesday, April 18

The Canadian Fintech 2.0 Summit will bring together more speakers, multiple tracks and more content on the future of financial services.

Pitch Battle

Here's how it works

On Tuesday, April 17, selected start-ups will have three minutes to pitch their fintech business, innovation or idea followed by a two-minute Q&A with our expert VC judges.

The top 10 start-ups will then move on to present at the Canadian Fintech 2.0 Summit on Wednesday, April 18, where the top 3 will be announced. An investment prize of over $100,000 is up for grabs and the winner will be determined by the BDC IT Venture Fund.

Does your start-up have what it takes?
