Rising stars from the Fintech startup universe are invited to apply for several prizes and the chance to build their networks and credibility with senior decision-makers and CEOs from the Luxembourg financial services community. This represents real and tangible opportunities for them to acquire new clients for their solutions and businesses.
Nasir Zubairi, CEO of the LHoFT (Luxembourg House of Financial Technology), co-partner in the Awards initiative, commented “The Fintech Awards are an amazing opportunity for Fintech firms from across the globe to connect with the vibrant Luxembourg ecosystem and build credibility with the financial institutions here. In particular, the Luxembourg finance industry is hungry for solutions related to fund management, insurance, and private banking, as well as data science, AI, and regulatory and compliance technology (‘regtech’)."
Bernadette Wijnings, CFO and co-founder of Blanco Services, and winner of the Women in Fintech Award at least year’s competition, added “Definitely [would recommend the Fintech Awards]. It was the start of building our network in Luxembourg, it attracted investors, and it even helped us in hiring new talents for blanco. So I’m really grateful for winning the award.”
Applications open until 1 May
The winners will be announced during the awards ceremony and after-party on the KPMG Plage beach in Luxembourg on 20 June in the presence of the Luxembourg Prime Minister, Xavier Bettel, and Luxembourg Finance Minister, Pierre Gramegna.
