After watching two days of live presentations from fintech innovators from around the world, the attendees at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016 have made their preferences plain. And while so many presenters, both veteran FinDEVr alums and newcomers, received enthusiastic praise for the way they are solving problems and developing tools to make payments more efficient, security more effective, and financial data a more accessible resource for everyone, there were a few companies this week at FinDEVr that stood out from an impressive pack.

So with no further ado, let’s take a look at the Favorites of FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016.

So give yourselves a pat on the back, raise a toast of something tasty, and mark your calendars as we take our developers conference to the Big Apple next spring for FinDEVr New York 2017, and then across the Atlantic for FinDEVr London 2017 in June.
