It’s events and awards season in the Fintech world…here’s what we’ve been up to!

FInovate Trophy

September has been a very busy month so far here at Ormsby Street– we’ve just returned from New York’s Finovate Fall where Martin demoed CreditHQ to an audience of around 2000; ranging from directors of international banks to startup leaders in the Fintech world.

The next stop on our whistle-stop tour of Fintech events this month was Barcelona, where Ormsby Street was chosen from over 900 companies as a finalist in the BBVA Open Talent Finals. Here, we were able to talk to over one hundred attendees from BBVA bank, hear some fantastic keynotes about the future of banking, and meet the other sixteen companies who were lucky enough to be shortlisted. Unfortunately, we didn’t win this time (huge congratulations to both Everledger and Origin Markets who delivered great pitches and won) but we made some great connections and learned a lot about how Fintech’s innovations can work alongside traditional banking methods to improve banking practices for everyone.

We’re now gearing up for our next set of nominations as the award and event season marches on. We’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for The Growing Business Awards (Young Company of the Year), 2015 UKIT Industry Awards (UK Innovation and Entrepreneurship), The Credit Excellence Awards (Newcomer to the Industry) and the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. Hopefully we’ll be adding some more awards to the shelf here at Ormsby Street HQ. Wish us luck!

CreditHQ at Finovate Fall!

We’re thrilled to now announce that we’re going to be demoing CreditHQ at this year’s Finovate Fall in New York!

FinovateFall is a demo-based conference for innovative startups and established companies in the fields of banking and financial technology. Held in New York City, the event offers an insight-packed glimpse into the future of money via a fast-paced, intimate, and unique format.

“For online personal finance nerds – like your humble correspondent – Finovate is the Super Bowl and World’s Fair rolled into one.” – MARY PILON, WALL STREET JOURNAL THE WALLET

Finovate

Competition is fierce to appear at this event, with around 70 companies from the financial technology sector showcasing new products or technology over the course of two days – both on stage and on their company stands to an audience of over 1500; including investors, VCs, entrepreneurs, expert analysts and influential press.

If you’re attending, please come and say hi and let us show you how CreditHQ can help all small businesses combat the problem of late payments and focus on growth and success.

FinovateFall is organized by The Finovate Group. For more information on the event or to view videos of previous demos, please visit finovate.com
