Singapore-based fintech startup Bambu was the winner of the Best Early Stage Startup Award at Fintech Finals 2017 in Hong Kong last month. Other highlights from the Fintech Finals 2017 included Ayannah winning the overall title, Best in Show, while DarcMatter won for Best Growth Stage and BIMA for Best Mature Stage.
Fintech Finals, an Asian Fintech conference and showcase, is organized by Next Money and sponsored by VISA. The award is presented to winners with business robustness, transformative innovation, responsive customer experience, financial forecasts and overall presentation. The overview: over 200 applications were submitted, 100 start-ups competed in semi-finals and Bambu made it to top 24. The finalists flew in to pitch their ideas and transformation methods for the winning title via a 6-minute pitch to judges and live audiences. Ned Phillips, Founder and CEO of Bambu, delivered the winning pitch among 13 other firms competing for that category.
“FinTech is in an incredibly exciting growth stage right now with many firms competing to build a successful business,” commented Phillips. To be recognised as a stand out firm in such an environment is a great motivator to keep us building on the journey we are on. A massive thanks to Next Money, Visa and all the start ups that entered for making the FinTech Finals the great success it was.”
