The award winners are the best of the best. It is now open for enrollment till Jun 27, 2022. I am so fortunate and honoured to have been the Chief Judge of this award since 2019.

Congratulations again to the Grand Award winners in the last few years including Tomas Holub #CoverGo (2019), Miles Wen (温豪夫) #FanoLabs (2020) and Calvin Cheng, CFA #Wizpresso (2021). They not just won the award but also transformed the #FinancialServices industry.

No matter whether you are FinTech #startups or financial services incumbents, I encourage you to join this award competition. Winning the award is good but learning together and building connections with our FinTech ecosystem is even more valuable.

The good news for this year is that we are witnessing better and stronger teams year from year. Here are the 3 key highlights.
