Financial innovation accelerator Startupbootcamp Fintech hosted the event last week, featuring 11 fintech start-ups culled from a field of 300 applicants earlier in the year.

The 11 successful companies completed a three-month acceleration program in which they collaborated with 300 mentors and signed more than 15 partnerships with financial institutions, including DBS Bank and PhillipCapital.

Startupbootcamp Fintech chief executive Markus Gnirck said the 11 start-ups selected are "leading the game in fintech in Southeast Asia".

"They are part of the change that is happening in this industry, and are in the sweet spot of the trends predicted by the crowd [today]," Mr Gnirck said.

The top 11 are listed below (descriptions provided by Startupbootcamp).
