Nasdaq’s Fintech Trailblazer Contest
Step into the spotlight and win a VIP marketing feature in Times Square with Nasdaq

*Contest Closed for 2023 

We appreciate your enthusiasm for the Nasdaq Trailblazer Contest. Entries are no longer being accepted at this time. Please revisit our contest next year for new opportunities. If you submitted your entry before the deadline, expect to hear from us by December 15, 2023, at 11:59 pm ET. Thank you for your participation!

In 1971, Nasdaq began operations as the world’s first electronic stock market, supporting the first wave of tech start-ups and transforming Wall Street in the process. In the decades since, we’ve been relentless in supporting companies that are disrupting their respective markets to challenge the status quo.

Nasdaq is on the hunt for innovative fintechs in the investment and wealth sector that leverage data to shape the future of investing. Regardless of whether you're in the pre-seed stage, seeking funding, or amidst the listing process, Nasdaq is eager to spotlight one data-powered Fintech company with the chance to shine in a series of high-visibility marketing opportunities.

As our VIP guest at the Nasdaq MarketSite in the heart of Times Square in New York City, you will:

  • See your company on the iconic Nasdaq Tower.
  • Be interviewed by Nasdaq’s Global Markets Reporter, Jill Malandrino, in a special episode of #TradeTalks.
  • View a live opening or closing bell ceremony.
  • Experience the thrill of the bell stage with a photo opportunity at our signing podium.
  • Tour the newly renovated Nasdaq MarketSite.
  • Meet Nasdaq executives to learn about our data business, fintech solutions, and the steps to going public.

*As if that weren’t enough, the winner will also appear on an episode of WorkWeek’s Humans of Fintech podcast.

Please fill out the questions below to be considered.
