Feedback From The Judges


“It was a fascinating experience to rank such a diverse range of companies. For me, as a communications expert, it was quite a representative case of evaluating how well businesses can stand out from their direct competitors. Apart from the project market potential, I assessed companies’ narratives and whether their communications reflected the positioning and the product. I’m certain that we will hear more of the projects that made it to the top of the list!”

– Valentina Drofa, Co-Founder and CEO at Drofa Comms


“Assessing this extensive array of innovative financial products and services demonstrates that by leveraging technologies such as AI, blockchain, and cloud computing, these projects streamline complex processes, reduce costs, and increase the speed of financial operations, benefiting both businesses and consumers.

“I strongly believe these top 50 fintech projects not only drive technological innovation within the financial sector but also contribute significantly to economic development, financial accessibility, and systemic resilience.”

– Evgeny Filichkin, Investment Advisor at Keytom


“It’s been a pleasure reading and learning about so many refreshing ideas and innovative companies in the fintech space. I’m excited to try out some of these products and services myself. Ranking them is not an easy feat. I’ve based my decisions on potential impact, reach and social good. Looking forward to seeing how technologies will continue to evolve and shape our industry, and how these fintechs will grow and scale.”
