FinTech Demo Day has companies of early and later stages all trying to solve big, complex problems that are challenging to execute given the barriers to entry in the market.  The companies were mostly B2B and worked closely with mentors at banks to understand how to be “must have” and not just a “nice to have” feature.  The lab works with the Partnership Fund for New York City.  

Every company that presented not only thanked the Innovation Lab and all that it did to help them, but detailed the benefits realized from this program.  This is all exciting because this is a very hard thing to do and it was done very well.  Breaking the market of legacy enterprise software and getting to work with potential customers to run pilots is huge in this space.  

Congratulations to FinTech Innovation Lab, Partnership for New York City, Maria Gotsch, and all of the mentors!
