With over 1500 FinTechs now on our European long list, 2017 was the most hotly contested 50 yet. It is not a competition - we don't call for 'entries'. Instead, we combine our own year-round independent research with the nominations of our panel and global community. 

If you would like to get on our radar, please contact us direct. 

Who is eligible?

We look at FinTechs across all verticals with an HQ in Europe. It's not an awards programme and there are no outright winners. Featured FinTechs tell us that being listed does great things for their business – getting them onto the radar of key investors and customers. Even for those who don't make the 50, there are opportunities to win business, simply by being on the shortlist.

Who selects the 50? Meet our new international selection panel

Each year we invite some of the most influential people in FinTech to choose their FinTech50. For 2017, we are extending this invitation to experts from around the world to create an international panel, who will review both the European and Asian FinTech50s.  Meet the first 50 members of our international panel
