Start-ups with financial technology solutions are being invited to compete at Temenos’ unique innovation event in Dubai in April 2016

Temenos, global leader in banking solutions, has announced that Fintech companies and start-ups from Egypt and the Middle East region will get the opportunity to demo their products and solutions to the world’s largest financial institutions, through the Temenos Fintech Innovation Jam.

Speaking at the Riseup Entrepreneurship Summit 2015, which takes place in Cairo from 12th – 13th December, Aaron Phethean, MarketPlace Director at Temenos, will reveal how this initiative is set to transform the Fintech ecosystem for the region.

“Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Temenos,” Phethean said. “We are passionate about the exciting current and future developments in financial services software, and we see a huge opportunity for start-ups from the region to expose their products and solutions through our platform, giving them access to over 2000 financial institutions that serve 500 million banking customers through our customer base and through the MarketPlace app-store.”

Following the success of the inaugural Innovation Jam at TCF (Temenos Community Forum) 2015 in Istanbul, Temenos has now taken the event global with a series of regional Innovation Jams to showcase the latest impressive demos of financial software to banking institutions.

The four international events, with industry expert speakers will be held at exclusive venues around the world:

Fintech organizations can register to get a demo slot (subject to the rules of entry) and get the chance to win a place in the final at the Global Jam taking place at the upcoming TCF in Barcelona, in May 2016.

Each demo will last for 7 minutes and the audience will vote to choose three winners at the end of each event.
