FinTech Australia announces Positive Impact award as it launches seventh annual 2023 Finnie Awards
FinTech Australia has launched a new award celebrating social impact in fintech, as it calls for entries for its seventh annual awards.
The new Positive Impact award will examine the social, environmental and economic impact of fintechs, aimed at celebrating work on this within the sector.
The event will be held at the Forum Theatre in Melbourne on May 31. 20 awards will be on offer this year, including Best Workplace Diversity, Emerging Fintech Leader Of The Year, Female Fintech Leader Of The Year and Outstanding Fintech Leader Of The Year.
FinTech Australia General Manager Rehan D’Almeida said: “We review the awards on offer every year to ensure they accurately represent progress within the fintech industry.”
“Over the past few years, the sector has been quietly working on more initiatives for financial inclusion, environment, education and broader societal impact. We want to champion and promote more of this work with the launch of the Positive Impact Award.”
“Impact will be a running theme for FinTech Australia this year. We aim to release further resources to further support companies in fintech heading in this direction.”
There were over 370 submissions to last year’s Finnie Awards across 22 categories in 2022. Over 430 attended the Gala Dinner. Payments fintech Marqeta has signed on as a Finnie Event Partner and will be presenting the Excellence in Business Lending Award. FinTech Australia is currently taking expressions of interest for further event partners.
Entries for the Finnie Awards open today and close March 10.
