About The Access to Finance50

The Access to Finance 50 is is our first global 50. It's designed to showcase the innovators worldwide who are promoting financial inclusion by transforming the way that people and businesses access financial services.

We are not restricting our search to a region - we will be looking at FinTech innovators around the world. 

FinTechs of all stages are eligible, from start-ups with the potential to become a game-changer and high-growth enterprises with the competitive staying power to continue being one. 

How to get on the list - Apply

The Access to Finance50 is not a competition, so we do not rely on award submissions. Instead, we undertake our own research  throughout the year and ask some of the biggest names in the sector to suggest FinTechs they would like to see listed. Then we invite them to select their top 50.

We also created this short form for FinTechs who would like tell us their story in their own words. To put your FinTech to our selection panel, apply here
