Fusion: 2018-2019 Fintech Fellowship – Startup Final Selection

by Amelie Janssens

Coming from more than 10 countries, the 17 shortlisted startups gathered on Monday 16th in Geneva for the final selection day for the Fintech vertical of Fusion.

Each startup was given 3 minutes to come on stage and personally pitch its business model.
After gathering the mentors and members live vote, we (members) and the Fusion team debriefed in a separate room on the pitches and the results of the vote – and we were mostly all in line!
