SuiteBox Wins Mobile Category of KPMG Fintech Innovation Challenge


Less than a month away from its Finovate debut, SuiteBox earned top honors in the mobile category of the KPMG Fintech Innovation Challenge.

The New Zealand-based company’s technology enables users to hold, manage, and record meetings online as well as share, analyze, and sign documents with any web connection via a virtual office environment.

“This success is a ringing endorsement of the opportunity for truly mobile virtual meetings between professionals and their clients across many industries,” SuiteBox CEO Richard Mannell said. “SuiteBox is excited to be at the forefront of delivering mobile office solutions globally.”

Organized by fellow Finovate alum Matchi, the KPMG Fintech Innovation Challenge is designed to encourage collaboration between fintech startups and FIs. Through the Challenge, six companies are selected by a panel of judges, and matched up with financial organizations to develop their technologies. On 10/11 February, the six companies will participate in the KPMG FinTech Innovation Summit in London along with a number of FIs including:

  • AIB (Ireland)
  • Bank Hapoalim (Israel)
  • Caixa Bank (Spain)
  • Liberty Group (South Africa)
  • Nationwide (United Kingdom)
  • Rabobank (Netherlands)
  • Standard Bank (South Africa)
  • Westpac (Australia)

Founded in 2013 and headquartered in Newmarket, Auckland, SuiteBox has more than 200 companies currently using its technology. This includes financial planners like Midwinter Financial Services, which announced in November that it would integrate SuiteBox, and independent financial advisory firm Canopy Private, “a major adopter of virtual advice solutions.”

Currently expanding in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and United Kingdom, SuiteBox will demonstrate its technology at FinovateEurope 2016 in London in February.
