The Women in FinTech Powerlist 2019, launched back in November, shines a spotlight on the women leading innovation in financial services. Now in its 6th year, the  Powerlist has increasingly attracted a global audience, resulting in applications and nominations from around the world. The 2019 iteration shines a spotlight on 200 women, across 7 categories.

A select number of women were chosen for the ‘Stand Out 35’ distinction by a panel of independent judges. Innovate Finance called on the FinTech ecosystem to nominate and submit applications, and received over 650 responses, highlighting that there is certainly no lack of female talent within the sector!

We want to congratulate everyone for their hard work and achievements and hope to see you all again for next year’s Powerlist

“Our Women in FinTech Powerlist is an eagerly awaited spotlight on the wide range of female talent at the forefront of innovation in financial services, and I would like to thank everyone who participated. All the women on our list are making a difference in the FinTech ecosystem around the world, yet females continue to be under-represented throughout, be it at board and executive level, or as founders looking for still elusive funding.”

– Charlotte Crosswell, CEO, Innovate Finance
