This September, the spotlight is on Georgia’s fintech community as Fintech South gears up to showcase the region’s top fintech innovators. This event promises not only an opportunity to witness innovation but also to celebrate the state’s remarkable contributions to the fintech sector.

The Innovation Challenge is one of the summit’s standout segments, which aims to celebrate Georgia’s most promising startups. Participants, selected based on their groundbreaking fintech ideas, undergo a month of mentoring from industry leaders. The program will then culminate in a competitive pitch session. The top three finalists will be given the opportunity to showcase their ideas to a wider audience at Fintech South. The challenge isn’t just about recognition; the best pitch will walk away with a $25,000 prize and free admission into the ATDC Accelerate program for an entire year.

But the spotlight at Fintech South isn’t reserved solely for newcomers. The ADVANCE Awards will recognize the heavy hitters in the industry. These awards are all about highlighting established fintech firms that have strong connections to Georgia and are propelling the industry forward with innovative solutions. Attendees will be able to witness the winners crowned live on stage at Fintech South!

For anyone with an interest in fintech, this is an event not to be missed. Be there to witness the present and future of fintech innovation in Georgia. Register your attendance today!
