Winners Circle: Finovate Honors Fintech’s Finest with New Awards Series

A new initiative now makes Finovate’s historic Best of Show awards just one of two ways that our conferences recognize exceptional achievement in fintech innovation.

The Finovate Awards, launched this year, leveraged the insights of fintech experts, analysts, and professionals, to produce what we believe is a true winners circle of our industry’s most impressive and accomplished companies and individuals.

Check out our list of Finovate Awards finalists.

“Finovate has always been a place where innovative fintech companies come to showcase their latest tech, but that tech alone isn’t enough to drive advancement,” said Greg Palmer, Finovate VP and one of the primary organizers of the inaugural Finovate Awards.

“It also takes hard work from financial institutions, accelerators, marketers, and a host of other professionals to bring something from the workshop into the market. We established the Finovate Awards to recognize the important work being done by the entire industry and to celebrate the companies and individuals who are leaders in the space.”

The judges of the first inaugural Finovate Awards

Much of the credit toward making the Finovate Awards possible goes to our cast of judges (pictured above) – a baker’s dozen plus one of some of fintech’s most astute and discerning analysts and observers. It was their task to sift through 192 nominations in 19 different categories to find which companies and individuals were making the biggest mark in their respective field.

“Judging was a tough gig,” tweeted Ghela Boskovich, founder of FemTechGlobal and one of the 14 judges of the Finovate Awards this year. “(A) great list of finalists.”

There are just two weeks to go before our Finovate Awards finalists learn which of them will take home top honors in categories ranging from digital banking and customer experience to financial inclusion and regtech. Here’s the order in which the Finovate Awards will be presented at the Edison Ballroom on September 24:

  2. Best Fintech Partnership
  3. Best Back-Office/Core Service Provider
  4. Best SMB/SME Banking Solution
