The organizing partners of the Fintech Awards Luxembourg have opened applications for the 2018 edition of the competition. Rising stars from the fintech startup universe are invited to apply for several prizes and the chance to build their networks and credibility with senior decision-makers and CEOs from the Luxembourg financial services community. This represents real and tangible opportunities for them to acquire new clients for their solutions and businesses.
Applications for the Awards opened on 1 March and will close on 1 May. Fifteen startups will then be selected to go through to Competition Day on 20 June, where they will be whittled down to seven finalists who will compete to be Fintech Startup of the Year. Prizes will also go to the first and second runner ups.
The winners will be announced during the awards ceremony and after-party on the KPMG Plage beach in Luxembourg on 20 June in the presence of the Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Luxembourg Finance Minister Pierre Gramegna.
The startups will be competing for prizes designed to help them grow and develop their company in Luxembourg. Prizes include €50,000; four months of hosting at the Technoport (coworking space in Luxembourg); 10 free consulting hours from KPMG; and a free LHoFT membership including six months of hosting at the LHoFT Fintech hub.
