Finnotec is made possible with the ardent support of a core group of leading fintech companies and other stakeholders in the financial technology and the wider business community. Without their financial and moral support, an event of this proportion would be impossible to organise. Their support also means tickets can be very reasonably priced for you.
Each year Finnotec reaches out to the community, specifically keeping in mind the themes for that year and the thought leaders in the respective sectors, who are then invited to sponsor the event. Huge thank-you's to each and every one who has backed this event passionately.
This year, we couldn't have pulled it off without this bunch of awesome sponsors who are willing to back the future of fintech!
A special thank you to our Platinum Sponsor, Kowhiri, for backing this event for a second year in a row.
