MEET NEW CLIENTS. GAIN CREDIBILITY. GET FUNDED. “We were bowled over by the success of last year’s awards — winners like went on to secure €2m in funding and bag several new clients among the banks and asset managers present at the awards ceremony. Since the first edition, Luxembourg has made great headway in the FinTech space, not least by opening a dedicated FinTech platform, the Luxembourg House of FinTech (the LHoFT). This organisation will join us and our partners in organising the awards this year. With their help, we expect to see even more FinTech success stories emerge amongst our future winners.” Georges BOCK KPMG Head of Tax and a founder of the awards Competition Day on 28 June Applications for the awards were open from 1 March to 1 May.

The FinTech Awards Luxembourg is a platform for startups to gain the credibility and network they need to connect with the Luxembourg financial services community.” The winners will be announced during the Awards Ceremony on the KPMG Plage beach in Luxembourg on 28 June in the presence of the Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Luxembourg Finance Minister Pierre Gramegna. €50,000 in prize money, sponsored by Digital Lëtzebuerg The startups will be competing for prizes designed to help them grow and develop their company in Luxembourg.
