The Search, Global Tour
Between June and October 2021, the Fintech Abu Dhabi Innovation Team searches the globe for the most innovative and inspiring fintech startups. Throughout each global tour stop, attendees hear from founders of the world's most exciting, early stage fintech startups in a series of pitching competitions. The winners of each pitching competition are invited to attend the main Fintech Abu Dhabi festival in November 2021.
Each search stop features dedicated panel discussions, fireside chats and pitching battles providing attendees with invigorating content around topics on the growth and adoption of fintech interconnecting across the globe plus the opportunity to see which fintech startups will be crowned winners and join the illustrious Fintech100 at Fintech Abu Dhabi 2021.
