Tradle is thrilled to win the KPMG Fintech Challenge in blockchain category, organized by Matchi. As a result we not only had great PR exposure, but got the opportunity to present to a set of banks and to KPMG's financial services leadership. This advanced our relationship with KPMG and we hope for mutual work with them in the future. We are also going to be eyeing new Fintech challenges organized by Matchi.
Sony’s selection of iProov as the winner of the FinTech Innovation Challenge with Matchi is an extraordinary and significant accolade. We very much look forward to working with Sony, delivering the benefits of our unique authentication technology to enhance user experiences, consumer trust and cyber security.
Thank you Matchi for identifying the Vanare Robo-advisor offering and connecting us to an exciting new business prospect with Liberty. It has been a pleasure dealing with your professional and enthusiastic team and we are looking forward to start working on the POC.
We have really enjoyed the Matchi Challenge experiences you have let us be a part of. I think this is an awesome concept that hopefully more and more companies will take advantage of. Being a part of the Matchi platform has given IDmission the opportunity to present to and pilot with global organizations that we normally would not have had access to on our own.
It was incredible to see the reach of the challenge with responses from Africa. Europe, USA, UK, Asia and Australia. Every innovation presented to us was worthy of a collaboration opportunity and we have already begun the journey of exploring long-term development partnership with some of the finalist.
Our Business Banking Challenge with Matchi was a great success, receiving responses from over 20 countries around the world and culminating with Proof of Concept projects with three of the six shortlisted finalists.
The Fintech Innovation Showcase was a great opportunity to see and explore 'disruption' up close.
