The hallmarks of the winning Fintech Business Awards entries will be innovation, entrepreneurship, vision, collaboration and business acumen resulting in success. The judging criteria for the awards include:

Innovation - The extent to which an entry represents a new approach to business challenges. Any business can follow best practice; this criterion will identify those who have pioneered methods that made their business stand out.

Entrepreneurship - We will look for business owners who have taken a risk to pursue their fintech dream, striking out from the crowd to create new digital products that enhance the consumer experience.

Creativity - We will assess the degree to which entrants demonstrate creativity in all aspects of their business model, brand values, relationships (with customers, suppliers and the public), and in their award submissions.

Outcomes - Can you demonstrate the outcomes your business has achieved, be they financial, geographical or in staff development and engagement? Outcomes and continual improvement will have a heavy weighting, so that the awards celebrate measurable achievements.
