New York City is the center of Financial Technology. At least, that’s what the third annual FinTech Innovation Lab is trying to prove.

On Thursday, after months of development and mentoring by big financial institutions, six winners of the competitive program were given the chance to present their financial technology products.

From security, consumer engagement, data analytics and storage, each business showed the potential to shake up the way financial services do business.

Centripetal Networks created an advanced cyber security solution, including a network-based security appliance and other services.
