2014 was a big year for financial technology investment. The amount of funding poured into the industry has increased five-fold over the last five years, with companies such as Square, Credit Karma and China’s Renrendai receiving $100m-plus in funding in 2014. The last year also saw FinTech investment in UK ventures grow more quickly than in any other market in the world.
But what was the top deal of 2014? Now is your chance to have your say by nominating in the FinTech Innovation Awards 2015.
The Fintech Deal of the Year award will recognise a VC or PE investment that helped support FinTech innovation, providing the opportunity for significant development within the sector. The judges will be looking for a deal where investors have not only invested funds, but also added key value through market connections and industry experience.
Nominations are also still open for FinTech Innovation of the Year, FinTech Leader of the year and FinTech Startup of the Year so don’t miss your chance to have your say and recognise clients, partners and industry leaders.
