What does the selection process look like?
The first round. European FinTech companies are nominated by stakeholders, users and experts. Entries are submitted by filling out a form and after approval the FinTech company profiles are published on this website. Make sure the company profile is perfectly fine as your company will be judged based on that by the judges.
The most important aspects to take into account on your company's profile are:
The next step is the determination of the FinTech top 100, consisting of the best 100 European FinTech companies.
The European FinTech Awards Top 100 is generated by combining public voting and expert assessment. The online voting starts on 1st of June and ends the 25th of August 2017.
Based on both the votes of the public and assessment of the panel of judges the European FinTech overall top 100 and the European FinTech Top 3 per category will be announced at the end of August 2017.
The second and final round will be on September 27 2017 during the European FinTech Awards. At this day the Top 3 FinTech companies within each category will have ten minutes in front of the top-notch panel of judges, to show them why your company should win.
On 27 September the winners of the European FinTech Awards will be announced. In every category there will be one winner and there will be one overall winner.
