Swiss FinTech Awards 2017: Startups can apply till Fridayby Fintechnews Switzerland November 8, 2016
Swiss fintech startups can apply here for the Swiss FinTech Awards 2017 till the end of this week. The improved award programme boosts young as well as mature startups by offering valuable mentorings, exclusive one-to-ones with decision makers from numerous banks and insurances as well as exposure to a jury of influential and outspoken fintech experts and investors.
With its distinct award categories for early stage and growth stage companies, startups of all age and funding stage can apply and benefit. According to Christian Lundsgaard-Hansen, organizer of the awards, the categories not only enable a more suitable and beneficial experience for startups with different backgrounds but also increase chances of getting into the finals even for very young companies and entrepreneurs.
Last year’s finalists of the awards made positive experiences. “The award has helped us speeding up our business and we are proud to have many new clients who we’ve met thanks to the Swiss FinTech Awards”, says Patrick Barnert, CEO of Qumram. Christian Lundsgaard-Hansen adds that the awards also helped other finalists of 2016 to gain traction in Switzerland as well as abroad because the awards “serve as an internationally acknowledged seal of quality” which helps early and growth stage startups alike.
