I’m very pleased to be going to NYC in October for Finovate. This is a new conference created by Jim Bruene who runs NetBanker. According to the website:
Following the popular format pioneered by DEMO, FINOVATE 2007 will provide each company with a mere 7 minutes to “wow!” an audience of 200 leading executives, investors, analysts, members of the press and bloggers with an actual demonstration of their latest and greatest product or service. The demos will be followed by intimate networking sessions where the attendees will get unprecedented access to the executives from these innovative companies.
Twenty leading companies have already committed to present including (in alphabetical order): Andera, Billeo Inc, CheckFree, ClairMail, Firethorn, Digital Insight (an Intuit company), Geezeo, Identity Theft 911, iPay Technologies, Jwaala, Lending Club, Metavante, mFoundry, Mint, Monitise, MortgageBot, MShift, Online Resources, Prosper Marketplace, and Yodlee.
I’ll be a fly on the wall for the day, live-blogging the whole thing. I’m very excited to be covering the event and getting a chance to learn from all the innovative presenters. See you there…
