Women in Fintech Powerlist 2021 Applications Now Open

Applications for the Innovate Finance Women in FinTech Powerlist 2021 are now open. The list aims to recognise the pioneering women championing financial innovation over the last year.

The 2021 Powerlist aims to reflect the multidisciplinary and changing nature of the fintech ecosystem and the women who are driving it forward. The 2021 Powerlist will shine a spotlight on 200 women across 9 categoriesĀ who have made a real impact over and above their day-to-day role.

This year two new categories have been added: Hubs and ESG. The Hubs category is open to women who work in international and national hubs or ecosystems; non-governmental organisations; schools, colleges or universities. They are seeking examples from those who go the extra mile to link industry and academia; or who convene a community of fintech innovators to create a responsible, diverse and inclusive culture. The ESG category seeks to recognise the women who are going above and beyond to embed environmental, social and governance principles into the fintech ecosystem; or who have founded, or lead, a firm that uses fintech to solve some of the key problem areas facing society.

As the Powerlist has grown in size and popularity, Innovate Finance felt that it was only fair to highlight the ever-growing community of women who are making such an impact on our sector.

The panel of independent judges will select the Standout 45; those who are making a real and lasting impact in fintech, over and above their day-to-day role.

The judging panel consists of:

  • Andy Ayim MBE,Ā Angel Investing School
  • June Angelides MBE, Samos Investments
  • Ezechi Britton, Impact X Capital
  • Clara DurodiĆ©, Cognitive Finance Group
  • Amy French, Level39
  • Stephen Ingledew, FinTech Scotland

Either apply yourself or nominate someone who deserves recognition, deadline for applications is 16th January 2022.
