European fintechs in search of venture capital funding are in luck this spring. The Startup Booster Program at FinovateEurope, taking place March 14 through 15, has been crafted to help early stage companies pitch their new ideas in front of investors from across the U.K. and Europe.

Fintechs that are less than five years old and haven’t closed a Series A round can apply now for the opportunity to have two hours to network and pitch their innovation to an audience of VCs, angels, corporate venture studios, and accelerators. Some of the investors participating in this year’s program include:

Here are three reasons why early stage, European companies in search of venture funding should make this year’s Startup Booster Program a priority:

  1. Two-hour investor networking reception
     All startups accepted into the Startup Booster Program will have a table to pitch, ask and answer questions, and make an impression.
  2. Your three-minute pitch video and pitch deck are shared with investor attendees
    Finovate provides startups with guidance and best-practices to make an engaging, three-minute pitch video. We’ll also share your video with the investor audience and event attendees.
  3. A full event access pass for only £600 per ticket
    Startup Booster participants receive special, discounted tickets to FinovateEurope that grant access to the entire event for only £600 per ticket. That’s a discount of £1,199 when compared to the current rate of £1799 for general audiences.

We’re also hosting a dedicated stream with content aimed to help early stage companies on their journey towards growth. Session topics include discussions on scaling your startup, selecting the right funding, landing a bank client, regulations, and a look at the newest opportunities in the space.

Since we launched in 2007, we’ve actively looked for ways to foster growth in the fintech industry. Helping early stage companies find access to funding is one way we’re doing so– which helps build and better our industry, as well. If you meet the criteria listed above, apply today.
