And the Best of Show Award Goes to… Arival Bank
On Halloween night BeFast.TV hosted a one-of-a-kind startup deathmatch party, “HELL-O-WIN”, which saw five startups deliver awesome pitch presentations in the presence of our four panels including, BeFast.TV’s very own Marina Bay, Ines Gafsi co-founder of Female Entrepreneurs Worldwide, Jessie Lam of Brinc as well as Micky Gangwani from Web Summit.
The highlight of the night was the presence of Arival Bank, the winners of FinTech Week at Finovate competition! Igor Pesin and Jeremy Berger joined our elite party and gave an exclusive fireside chat with Marina to kickstart our event.

So… what is Arival Bank and how is it different?
Arival is one of the first digital banks that can onboard crypto-related businesses. Despite being a crypto-friendly bank, Arival itself is a traditional regulated bank operating under a US-based banking license and only banking in fiat currency. We exclusively serve businesses using a 100% digital, paperless, and branch-less approach.
Arival has two core competencies:
1. The first is digital compliance & customer onboarding.
2. The second is product accessibility. Arival Bank partners with some of the best names in fintech to integrate their top of the line products and services. This allows us to really customise the user experience and provide a full suite of high-quality products in one interface.
