What is the goal of the Inclusive Fintech 50?
Capital is available to well-known fintechs, but it’s less so for early-stage fintechs focused on financial inclusion. Greater visibility will help fintechs attract the capital and knowledge they need to scale and, ultimately, reach the 3 billion financially underserved people. Specifically, we aim to:
Generate awareness of the ability for fintechs to reach the underserved and propel the financial services industry forward;
Develop standardized criteria for investors to assess the performance and potential of early-stage fintech companies; and
Create greater visibility into a pipeline of lesser-known fintechs to help them find the right partners to scale.
The winners of the Inclusive Fintech 50 will be heavily publicized through media partnerships, digital activations, a white paper, and a public announcement.
