The Swiss Fintech Awards aims to promote Swiss fintech, insurtech and blockchain innovators and to contribute to the strong Swiss fintech ecosystem by recognising outstanding start-ups and fintech influencers. A renowned jury consisting of 20 fintech experts will select the best startups that will take home a prize either as the Early Stage Start-up of the Year or the Growth Stage Start-up of the Year.
From the recently announced finalists, the jury has nominated two companies in each category to proceed to the finale. The semi-finalists will get the opportunity to present their solutions to the audience during the Swiss FinTech Awards Night, held as part of the FuW Forum “FinTech 2022 – Mastering the Transformation” in Zurich.
The finalists in their respective categories are:
