FinTank

CorporateTreasurer is excited to announce the launch of FinTank 2018, the world’s first live targeted competition, specific to the treasury FinTech space, where startups are able to pitch directly to the product’s ultimate end-users.

We’re inviting start-ups to pitch your products and services in front of an exclusive panel of 5 of Asia’s most sophisticated treasurers, searching for the most exciting solutions to help with their businesses.

When you make your online submission, think carefully about how your solution can make lives easier. To help get you on your way, ask yourself:

  • Can your solution disrupt the traditional payments model?
  • Does your product enable easier access to funding?
  • Can you help companies put corporate data to good use?

Through this process, you will gain comprehensive and constructive insight and feedback. Whether your products are directed specifically for the treasurers themselves or the financial institutions that they engage with on a daily basis, CT’s FinTank 2018 is the ideal arena in which to pitch your product or service.

Along with this, the top 3 startups as voted by our panel, will win bespoke, year-long marketing campaigns courtesy of CorporateTreasurer, providing you direct exposure to CT’s audience of 9000 treasurers and corporate finance executives.
