Money20/20, the world's largest event for payments and financial services innovation with more than 6,500 attendees, today announced the line-up for 2014's Launchpad360 program, which offers companies the opportunity to showcase their disruptive innovations in front of the industry's most senior leaders, investors and analysts.
Launchpad360 presentations will take place on Tuesday, November 4 and Wednesday, November 5 at Money20/20, which runs from Sunday, November 2 to Wednesday, November 5 at the Aria Resort & Casino convention facility in Las Vegas.
Money20/20's Launchpad360 is a special format, primarily for early stage companies, to provide a complete 360-degree view of their leading-edge products and services in 360-second sessions. Last year's inaugural Launchpad360 offered participants an unparalleled opportunity to showcase their innovations, which resulted in more than $65 million in venture capital funding collectively raised to date.
This year's Launchpad360 companies include:
Launchpad360 will also feature the winning team of the Money20/20 Hackathon, which is taking place on November 1-2 at the Aria. The hackathon will feature hundreds of talented developers, designers and entrepreneurs competing to create FinTech applications and claim a share of the $125,000 total prize pool.
According to Simran R. Aggarwal, co-founder and president of Money20/20, opportunities to present at Launchpad360 are extremely coveted, following the overwhelming success of the companies that participated in last year's event.
"Launchpad360 is the industry's leading platform for companies to demonstrate innovations to analysts, peers, potential customers, investors and others," said Aggarwal. "At last year's event, our participants delivered truly impressive innovations and disruptive technologies and we've enjoyed watching their ongoing successes. Launchpad360 is the ultimate launch pad for companies in the payments space and for industry participants eager to get a first-hand look at what's to come."
