NXTSTAGE pilot competition

October 6, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

About this event
This is an exciting occasion for local leaders in banking and finance, businesses, investors and entrepreneurs to take part in recognizing the innovation that drives our city and business community forward.

Here’s a little about who we are and why we do this –

The NXTSTAGE Pilot Competitions are a program of NXTUS, a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is, in part, to accelerate innovation in Wichita as a means for sustainable economic growth.

This FinTech Competition boosts the pace of innovation in the region and accelerates the growth of young tech companies.

Here’s how NXTSTAGE FinTech works –

NXTSTAGE partnered with Fidelity, Emprise and Intrust banks to discover what types of challenges they are facing, then did a national search to find startups who offer solutions to those challenges.

Out of 110 applicants, the finalists compete to get paid pilot projects from one of these top tier Wichita banks.

That brings us to this Innovation Showcase event –

We culminate the competition in this final Innovation Showcase event. All the startups visit Wichita and we host a “Shark Tank like” competition. The livestream audience gets to see the startups pitch their potential bank customers.

You’ll get an insider’s look at the next big ideas coming to Wichita!

We invite you to attend the livestream and take part in the fun! Live attendees can win awesome gift packs and prizes from local businesses.
