“There are few events that produce such impactful business results for their presenters and attendees,” said Joy Schoffler, founder and principal of Leverage PR and executive chair of the FinTech Professionals Association. “We have advised clients to demo at Finovate for years and have witnessed first-hand the valuable impact on customer and investor acquisition, strategic partnerships, as well as analyst and media connections that have resulted by participating in such a renowned event.”
