FIBC is an event specializing in the FinTech field providing a
communication platform linking FinTech startups, leading corporations
and other businesses, venture capital firms and media professionals
through a pitch contest and networking. This will be the seventh time
this event is held. Since 2016, overseas startups have been actively
encouraged to take the podium as the conference has been transformed
into a global event where all programs are conducted in English. Again
this year, this event features support with well-known overseas
accelerators and incubation centers; Startupbootcamp, Lattice80, Stone &
Chalk, SuperCharger, and various embassies. As a result, more than half
of the pitch contest participants are from overseas.
In the main event pitch contest, each company will conduct seven-minute
demonstrations of the latest FinTech services released within the past
two years or set for release in the near future. Afterward, the
presentations will be graded by a panel of judges and voted on by
participants, then the winner will be announced.
By hosting this event, ISID contributes to the establishment of Japan’s
FinTech business ecosystem by supporting the creation of financial
innovation and the spread of these technologies in Japan.
