ADGM, in collaboration with Unbound, successfully held FinTech Abu Dhabi 2019 from 21 – 23 October 2019 with positive reviews received from the FinTech community.

This year, FinTech Abu Dhabi 2020 is expected to be even bigger and more exciting, attracting more than 7,500 participants and influencers, 150 speakers, and 125 exhibitors. In particular, it will once again feature the hugely successful and popular Innovation Challenge, where FinTech firms are given the opportunity to present innovative solutions to specific problem statements posed by financial institutions, corporations and government agencies (“Corporate Champions”). The aim of the Innovation Challenge is to address challenges in the region’s financial sector through collaboration with FinTech firms to develop innovative solutions to these problems.
As part of the recruitment process, ADGM and Unbound will conduct a global roadshow and host pitching competitions at 30 international cities to select the world’s top FinTechs, and bring them to Abu Dhabi. This year’s Innovation Challenge will, for the first time be hosted in the ADGM Digital Lab (formerly known as ADGM Digital Sandbox), a digital environment provided and supervised by ADGM. Participants can use the Digital Lab to seamlessly connect, experiment and develop innovative solutions creating new products and test prototypes swiftly.
