“24 startups. 360 seconds. One chance to impress.” That was the chance we grabbed with both hands last week at one of the premier FinTech events, Innovate Finance’s Global Summit in London. Grasping the chance saw us win the distributed ledger technology category at the Pitch360 competition – YAY!!
The happy pitcher, Sofie, hiveonline CEO, said “As well as winning our category, it was fantastic to be in an all-female final for an open blockchain competition”. We are beyond happy for such achievement and want to THANK YOU ALL who voted for us in the competition, and who are supporting us on our journey to become one of the greatest disruptors of the fintech world!!
The whole Summit event, starting on Monday, March 19th, was an exciting opportunity for us to gain significant exposure for our business and products, but most importantly to call attention to the way that relevant and useful financial innovations will transform the life of SMEs.
We also shared with everyone how we can bring informal businesses into the formal economy in developing countries by creating them suitable services such as frictionless reputation records. It was a pleasure for us to meet so many people; many other founders, VCs and journalists.
Thank you all for supporting us and bee’lieving in us!
