Finovate Day 2 and Best In Show

Yesterday, I arrived at Finovate a wee bit tired after hanging out Brandy Library with some of the conference attendees the night before.  The whiskey tasting was fun and informative.

Anyway back to the conference. A great way to keep up with the 56 companies who presented is to check  out this mind map created by  Maarten Korz.
