Crowdfunder’s approach to matching extra funding from their partners with projects that truly matter achieved them Fintech Innovation of the Year at the Digital Leader 2018 Awards yesterday evening.
Crowdfunder look after more than £4m of extra funding from their partners; a mix of public and private sector organisations, charities and funding bodies. Driven by the belief that ideas have the incredible potential to bring about a new way of seeing or doing things, Crowdfunder has a truly ‘Tech For Good’ ethos and they harness digital technology to support and enable communities to unlock a fairer and more sustainable future.
This innovation saw Crowdfunder make the DL100 list which was released and put to the public vote back in April; side by side with fellow influencers and innovators from across the UK. Competing against other leading organisations including LOQBOX and Neyber, the team at Crowdfunder are extremely proud to have been chosen to be a part of the award process and for the recognition of their leading extra funding process.
The winners were announced at the Digital Leader Awards ceremony held last night in London which celebrated pioneering digital achievements last year.
Phil Geraghty, Founder and Chief Crowdfunding Officer at Crowdfunder, said, “We are delighted to be awarded with the Fintech Innovation of the Year Award. Crowdfunder’s mission is to match the projects that matter with supporters who care, and our extra funding programme enables these projects to have a bigger impact. We are always looking to improve and expand this offering, and to receive this recognition from Digital Leaders for the innovation so far is brilliant.”
