The world is a very busy place. There’s enough going on with checking emails, attending meetings or planning strategy that time becomes invaluable. When you’re building your own startup or scaleup, things get even trickier. But here’s an idea: CEE Fintech Challenge. It’s the biggest online competition for fintech startups in the CEE region and all you need to do is apply online.


Yes! You can focus on growing your business, while the platform takes care of promoting it to leading global investors, corporates and media. What’s more, you also get an access to tools automating and managing the fundraising process, all in one place.

If your startup fits in the categories of fintech, insurtech, regtech, blockchain, security & risks, Big Data & analytics, business & ICT or products & services, CEE Fintech Challenge is something right up your alley!

What’s in it for you? Brand24 and Vestbee offer an annual premium access to their services, with three months for free for all applicants and fundraising support and advice respectively. InfoShare also chipped in with three startup passes for three winning teams. That’s something to look forward to!

CEE Fintech Challenge is also perfect for investors and corporates. It’s the biggest matching platform currently available gathering Central and Eastern Europe startups and scaleups. What’s best, it minimises the workload by providing a list of pre-screened deals matching the investors’ strategies.

Are you feeling encouraged? You better hurry up then – the timeline is pretty tight. The applications close on August 31st and the top 50 applicants will be announced shortly after, on September 10th. Stay tuned for the announcement of the finalists on the 17th and the winners – on the 20th!

There’s no time to waste! Apply here!
