It will be attended by Visa and Bank executives, as stakeholders of the Program, VC Funds, mentors and supporters of the Program, as well as key executives of the FinTech ecosystem. The program of the Demo Day includes important intro talks and a keynote speech, a panel with experts discussing FinTech & the road ahead, and of course pitching videos by the two cohorts, followed by Q & A sessions with a consultation panel.

As the whole event will be staged on a virtual conference platform, there will be opportunities for engagement and chances for Q&A discussions. Furthermore, upon the completion of the event, virtual booths for the companies and networking space for potential investors and partners will be available.
