After the lunch Break, It was time for the 24 finalist Start-ups to deliver their six minute speeches at the Pitch360: Demo Day event. The companies were distributed in eight categories, Blockchain, Financial Inclusion, Cyber Security, Cross Border Payments, Peer-to-Peer & Alternative Funding, RegTech, Personal Finance and Artificial Intelligence. A few minutes later, at 5:20, the Hub Culture journalist Edie Lush, announced the winner of the 2017 edition.
It was also turn for Justin Dickerson from DataRobot to lead a roundtable that discussed the future of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the FinTech industry. Two hours later, Freuds’ Ryan Larnach and Brew’s Monica Sondhi, hosted a bespoke, intimate session, for entrepreneurs, founders and CEO´s in which they gave valuable tips on how to pitch to media, and what FinTech should be doing from a media perspective.
Ben Brabyn from Level 39 provided advice for current and future entrepreneurs about the ups and downs of growing a FinTech company, and the particular requirements of scaling business. We were interested in looking at which topics were driving the most attention on social media, so we analysed all the posts from the conference to provide a top 10 topic share of voice:
It’s interesting to see the topic of “Payments” and “Blockchain” entering the debate since the 12pm update. We also saw the topics of “Regulation/Policy” and “RegTech” achieving larger results than in the morning update due to this evening’s events.
Next we wanted to see who were the top influencers and brands driving attention at the conference so far, so we looked at the number of posts mentioning the official hashtag #IFGS2017 from the morning session until 5pm:
