BOSTON (PRWEB) February 12, 2020
FinTech Sandbox has revealed nine FinTech startups chosen for Demo Day 7.0, to be hosted at Moody’s Analytics offices on April 2nd, in conjunction with New York FinTech Week. This is the third time FinTech Sandbox has brought Demo Day to New York, and it is the seventh iteration of FinTech Sandbox Demo Day.
Nonprofit FinTech Sandbox facilitates innovation in the financial sector by making data and infrastructure available to well-qualified FinTech startups at the point when such access is most impactful. These Sandbox startups, in return, are expected to collaborate with each other, sharing learnings and advancements that benefit the FinTech ecosystem. Participating startups pay no fees, and no equity is taken.
Demo Day is an opportunity for a select audience to go under the hood of robust technologies solving the industry’s most pressing challenges. Firms will showcase products developed. They are:
- POSH is a conversational AI platform startup founded at MIT to automate routine communications tasks via context-aware bots.
- Pinkaloo helps customers build stronger relationships with their customers by directly powering the charitable giving in their communities.
- Tunnel is a global, real-time payments network with peer-to-peer mobile apps with no transaction fees & APIs built for business transactions

According to Jean Donnelly, FinTech Sandbox Executive Director, “We are very excited to see what these nine startups will present, and to see how access to data and services provided by our partners has accelerated their development and fueled further advances in FinTech.”
Demo Day 7.0 is sponsored by Commonwealth, the Boston-based financial inclusion nonprofit, and Refinitiv. It is supported by amazing community partners including FreeWind Productions, Ideometry, and the Financial Revolutionist.
