EBAday 2024: Fintech Zone finalists revealed!

For the sixth year running, EBAday will host a dedicated Fintech Zone, where 16 early stage and growth startups will compete for the chance to be crowned the 2024 winner.

The shortlisted fintech firms will be able to network and demonstrate their products to leading payment heads and banking executives on the judging panel and attending the conference.

Finextra and the Euro Banking Association (EBA) have chosen startups with a proof of concept or working product to pitch during their dedicated slot on either day one or day two of the conference.

The shortlist includes fintech firms pitching their products that operate within next generation banking, payments-as-a-service, instant payments and request to pay, identity services and fraud prevention, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), cross-border payments interoperability, trends in payments technology and fintech collaboration, and trends in liquidity and cash management practices.

Here’s the list of finalists:
