Startup Exchange

In 2018, kickoff FTX by joining us on April 25, 2018 for Startup Exchange — 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.

At FTX18 you will have the opportunity to take a deep dive into two seminars focused on the hottest topics impacting financial markets and trading:

Both sessions will be conducted by industry leaders who are experts in their fields.

These seminars are designed to educate you on the hottest topics in our industry, and whether you are directly involved with them or not, you will gain the knowledge to expand your industry depth.
