The Fintech Power 50 has officially launched at Money20/20 Vegas, unveiling the 50 innovators that will make up its global fintech community. Handpicked from hundreds of applicants, the Fintech Power 50 members are the most influential, innovative and powerful figures in the Fintech industry, all playing leading roles in transforming financial services for the better.
The community includes huge variety, from household names such as Monese and Revolut, to established fintech players like PaySafe, emerchantpay and Banking Circle, to up and coming innovators like Bud, UniZest, Jaroona and MYPINPAD. Well-known influencers also feature among the 50 including the likes of industry heavy weights Ghela Broskovich and Brett King.
Members benefit from a hub that actively promotes them to a global audience, including bespoke networking and event opportunities, organised with partners, such as B-Hive Europe, and London and Partners. Already, members are using the hub to foster strategic partnerships that are emerging between both the fresh up-and-coming fintechs and established financial technology leaders looking to collaborate on the next big thing.
Commenting on the launch, Alex Park, Director of Digital at Metro Bank, a partner of the Fintech Power 50 said, “Supporting and encouraging those businesses with fresh ideas goes to the very heart of who we are as an organisation. Given our own experiences of disrupting the banking industry, we’re in a prime position to help nurture, develop and even partner with other fintechs.”
Jason Williams, founder of The Fintech Power 50, commented, “We’re hugely excited to unveil the final 50 in our inaugural year. The Fintech Power 50 is not just another fintech list, nor is it a glitzy awards programme – we have built a platform from which members can collaborate effectively, benefiting from bespoke advice, comprehensive media coverage and exclusive event access. We look forward to seeing our members accelerate and establish new market positions over the coming 12 months.”
In partnership with the Fintech Times, the exclusive printed publication of The Fintech Power 50, the community will be promoted at this week Money 20/20 Vegas and other major global fintech events SIBOS, and Hong Kong Fintech Week.
