I'm delighted to have been asked back as a Judge for the Fintech Wales Awards. The need to identify & nurture new innovation in order to build back better has never been stronger, Fintech will have a strong contribution to make . I'm looking forward to learning what amazing new innovative Startups the Valleys have created, to see where seed ideas have grown and hear about the future plans for the vibrant Fintech's in Wales.
- Sarah Williams-Gardener , CEO FinTech Wales
We have created world class financial and professional services here in Wales. The sector is hugely important to the Welsh economy and the growing pool of talent in the industry will be key as we recover from the severe impacts of coronavirus. The pandemic has placed incredible pressures and challenges on our businesses, but I am immensely proud of the way our resilient workforces have succeeded in the face of adversity. FinTech Awards Wales provides an opportunity to recognise the exciting firms and individuals who have driven this flourishing industry through the public health crisis and I encourage everyone to nominate those individuals who they feel deserve to be recognised.
- Ken Skates, Minister for Economy, Transport and North Wales
Wales is earning itself a name as an established FinTech hub formed of agile start-up businesses to innovative tech giants. The tech sector is worth £8.5bn* to the Welsh economy. Demonstrating the calibre of organisations operating in Wales through the FinTech Wales Awards will help us to attract the best talent to the region and allow us to continue growing our community. We’re excited to celebrate the achievements of our fellow FinTechs at this first-of-its-kind event in Wales. Roll on July!
