Inclusive Fintech 50 Competition: Last Day to apply for Financial Inclusion FinTech Startups

Green and white Inclusive fintech 50

The Inclusive Fintech 50 competition is extending the application deadline to Friday, July 30th. The Inclusive Fintech 50 initiative leverages a competitive process led by an independent judging panel of experts to identify 50 early-stage fintechs driving financial inclusion and resilience.

It is looking for early-stage fintechs in advanced or emerging markets that offer a solution among credit, insurance, payments & remittances, savings & personal financial management, or infrastructure addressing special challenges of underserved customer segments.

The global pandemic has underscored the importance of having access to financial services, which act as a stabilizing force for low-income households and businesses. Fintechs play an important role in expanding access to these vulnerable populations, but these startups themselves need access to capital and connections. Inclusive Fintech 50 makes these startups more visible to investors and partners who can help them reach more of the 3 billion financially underserved people.

The Inclusive Fintech 50 aims to make early-stage fintechs more visible to investors and others who can help them grow and have a noticeable impact on the billions of financially underserved people. Additionally, the initiative supports the broader inclusive fintech ecosystem through actionable market-level insights generated from aggregated and anonymized applicant data.
