Venn Innovation will lead a group of 10 technology companies to the Money 20/20 conference in Las Vegas from Oct. 27 to 30 with the goal of increasing sales within the financial services space.

The Atlantic Fintech Mission will travel to Money20/20, which attracts the entire payments, fintech and financial services industry. Billed as the world’s largest fintech and payments event, the conference is an opportunity to meet potential partners and clients to explore the disruptive ways in which consumers and businesses manage, spend and borrow money.

“Both Atlantic Canada and our financial technology industry are positioned for growth," said Venn President and CEO Doug Robertston in an email. "We have innovative companies that can compete on the world stage, and Money20/20 is the conference where we showcase the region and our capabilities. . . .  With the largest venture deal in Canadian history, Verafin has proven to the world that Atlantic Canada is a great place to build a world class fintech company.”

Moncton-based Venn, which offers programs and support for New Brunswick technology companies, is helping to prepare the companies for the conference and develop connections before the show. Once on-site, the participating companies will have access to workshops, networking opportunities and AI-powered matchmaking technology to maximize the value of the event.
