Checking In and Catching Up: Shining a Light on  the Best of Show Winners of FinovateFall

What have the companies that have won Best of Show at FinovateFall in recent years been up to since receiving top honors from our Finovate audiences?

With FinovateFall 2021 right around the corner, we thought now would be an excellent time to check in with some of the celebrated alums from our most recent autumn events.

2020

Q2, which won Best of Show honors at FinovateFall 2020 for its online digital marketplace that enables collaboration between fintechs and financial institutions, acquired fellow Finovate alum ClickSWITCH in April of this year.

Also in April, FinovateFall 2020 Best of Show winner Monit secured $5.2 million in seed funding for its finance app that gives small business owners insights and personalized guidance to help them manage their businesses better. The round was led by TTV Capital.

Lendsmart secured pre-seed funding in a round led by INV Fintech in February. The investment came after the company earned a Best of Show award at FinovateFall 2020 for a demo of its AI-driven technology that brings automation and transparency to the lending process.


2019

Zogo, which leverages partnerships with financial institutions to promote financial literacy among the young, raised an undisclosed sum a little over a year after making its Best of Show winning appearance at FinovateFall 2019.

Winning Best of Show in its FinovateFall debut in 2019, digital charitable giving platform Pinkaloo was acquired by philanthropic services firm RenPSG in the spring of 2021.

Multiple-time Best of Show winner MX, which picked up its latest Best of Show trophy at FinovateFall 2019, secured $300 million in Series C funding in January of this year, driving its valuation to $1.9 billion.

Digital customer service innovator Glia, another company that has earned multiple Best of Show trophies from Finovate audiences – including at FinovateFall 2019, raised $78 million in January of this year.

Cinchy not only raised $10 million in Series A funding after a Best of Show winning demo of its data collaboration platform at FinovateFall the previous autumn. The Canada-based company also secured an additional $10 million in funding in May of this year, as well.


2018

White-label digital banking solution provider Meniga, which picked up a Best of Show award at FinovateFall 2018, secured a $11.8 million investment this spring in a round led by Velocity Capita and Frumtak Ventures.

In a Series A round led by Canaan Partners, Bumped raised $10.4 million in new funding last November. Earning a Best of Show award in its debut at FinovateFall in 2018, the company enables brands to give their customers free stock for their purchases, turning shoppers into shareholders.
