SEEKING MONEY’S FUTURE CHANGE-MAKERS AND TRAILBLAZERS, MONEY20/20 ASIA HAS OPENED APPLICATIONS FOR ITS STARTUP PITCH COMPETITION AND ANNOUNCED THE 2020 WINNER’S PRIZE


Money20/20 Asia has announced that applications are now open for the 2020 edition of its Startup Pitch initiative. The winner will be chosen at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, on the third and final day of the event, 26 March 2020.
Startup Pitch provides the next generation of entrepreneurs and disruptors with the opportunity to showcase their world-class products, network with senior decision-makers and gain first-hand experience from leading minds within the fintech, digital business tech, and product space. An onsite workshop with well-known investors will also be hosted for shortlisted candidates on 24 March 2020.

To be eligible, startups must be founded less than 3 years ago and have raised less than USD $3M.
Applications close on 29 January 2020, and the 15 shortlisted candidates will be announced on 12 February 2020, then pitching for three top slots, rated by a line-up of VC judges. The winner is picked by the audience during a mainstage session on the last day of the show.
Key dates:
- Applications close: 29 January 2020
- Shortlist announcement: 12 February 2020
- On-site workshop with investor/business leaders: 24 March 2020

JOSH FOREMAN, FOUNDER, INDEBTED, who participated in last year’s Startup Pitch, commented, “The Startup Pitch program is a fantastic opportunity for early-stage startups to gain further exposure to potential investors, clients, and talent at a global scale. Particularly for fintechs, there is no better platform than Money20/20 in which to battle test your ideas at a global level.”
TRACEY DAVIES, PRESIDENT, MONEY20/20, said, “With Asia’s booming startup scene and sky-high valuations in China, India and Southeast Asia, we are incredibly excited to launch Startup Pitch and scout out who is driving forward and transforming the future of money.”
“We encourage any change-makers that can showcase an innovative business model, whether it is challenging the norm, improving lives or bringing financial services to Asia’s unbanked population, to apply now. The onstage pitching sessions are always a highly anticipated part of the show, and we look forward to seeing what this year’s applicants bring to the table”, adds Ms. Davies.
