"My Finovate participation is close to double digits and I've had both the honour and the misfortune to meet another 100+ FinTech Start-Ups on top of that as a mentor or investor. I'm looking for those demos that say "Our team gets it and we *have* to solve this for/instead of #banking or the consumer will suffer (some more)" - they're a combination of knowledge and passion that can shake the industry."
