At Money20/20 2017, 24 of the hottest Fintech startups gave attendees and a panel of renowned VC judges their best pitch! Across two events, Startup Pitch attendees picked their two favorites to move on to the main stage “Pitch Off” as did our VC judges.
Four companies entered the Pitch Off, but only one could win the Grand Prize. That company was “Steady” headed by Co-Founder & CEO, Adam Roseman.
Startup Pitch at Money20/20 is the Fintech ecosystem's most exclusive startup challenge, bringing together compelling startups in AI, wealth management, biometrics, payments and more!

How Does it Work?

• 24 elite startups pitched their company in just 3 minutes followed by 3 minutes of questions from our panel of judges
• Our panel of judges selected 2 of these innovators to move on to the one-on-one Startup Pitch Finals on the main stage.
• Here, our audience ultimately selected the $25,000 Grand Prize Winner.

In 2018, we were thrilled to welcome 2017 winner, Steady back to the keynote stage. Adam Roseman joined our all-star panel of judges in our Final Pitch-Off & Awards, and returned alongside a new, BIG addition to his team: entrepreneur and basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal!

Check out our lineup of leading startups that competed and our roster of esteemed judges!
