Swift Innotribe, together with a pool of over 500 judges, have nominated the semi-finalists for the 2014 Startup Challenge.

47 companies have been selected from around the world to pitch their business ideas during three regional showcases in London, Singapore and New York. The five winners of each regional showcase (three early-stage startups and two growth-stage innovators) will automatically secure a place as a finalist in the Grand Finale at Sibos, SWIFT's annual conference, in Boston on Wednesday 1 October.

Fabian Vandenreydt, Head of Markets Management, Innotribe and the SWIFT Institute at SWIFT, says "We are very impressed with the record number and quality of the 280 applications submitted for this year's Innotribe Startup Challenge. Our judges have selected a variety of companies showcasing numerous opportunities for the financial services industry. We look forward to seeing these companies in action at the different showcases, pitching with enthusiasm and passion."

Commenting on New York's innovation landscape, Fabian adds: "The US market is a hotbed of innovation and New York City is an ideal location for us to offer inspiration, gain insights, and add valuable connections to our network. We are delighted to be back in New York for a third straight year and are proud to continue to support innovation in this region."

During the showcases, the semi-finalists will pitch their new innovative business ideas to an audience of global innovators and investors, venture capitalists and industry experts. Attendees will be involved in insightful discussions, and able to network with early-stage startup and growth-stage innovators. They will also vote for the companies of their choice, helping to select the 5 finalists who will join us at Sibos.
