What's New in 2018

Startup Exchange Competition

In 2018, kickoff FTX by joining us on April 25, 2018 for Startup Exchange Competition — a brand new, half-day event dedicated solely to startups within financial markets and trading.

With the opportunity for startup firms to present their best ideas and technology on-stage to a panel of judges, this event is the perfect opportunity to attract investors, partners and clients, as well as a chance to win cash prizes.
