Swift to host start-up contest at Sibos

08 October 2010  |  10227 views  |  0 panel session

Swift has named the 11 finalists that will battle it out in a Dragons' Den-style Innotribe start-up competition at this year's Sibos.

The competitors, unveiled by Swift's Peter Vander Auwera on his blog, will each be given five minutes to make their pitches to a panel of venture capitalist judges in Amsterdam on 28 October.

After the pitches there will be a quick Q&A with the judges while the audience will have its say using a "high-tech" applause meter.

Swift has chosen the finalists based on four themes for its Innotribe 2010 programme: cloud, mobile, smart data and Long Now.

The finalists are:

  • AcceptEmail: E-billing and payment via e-mail
  • BehavioSec: Behavioural analysis of keyboard/ mouse usage
  • Canatu: Printable devices based on nano-technology
  • Collibra: Business semantics glossary for data management
  • Cumulate: Mobile payments based on cloud and semantic Web
  • Hypios: Semantic Web for finding experts
  • Kinamik: Data Integrity and in-stream archiving
  • MiiCard: Identity and dematerialization of bank account creation
  • MyWOT: My Web of trust
  • FX Capital Group: The currency and payments platform
  • Smartlogic: Semantic analysis of contracts/legal documents

The winner will be revealed in the final closing plenary later in the day.

Finextra@Sibos will be bringing you all the breaking news, along with blogs, videos and photos from Amsterdam.
