The Asia FinTech Awards, brought to you by FinTech Intel, is proud to announce the winners from the 2023 awards ceremony.
There were a record number of entries this year. The judges debated and deliberated to select 19 winners, which were revealed at the Hilton Singapore Orchard on 24 August.
The biggest award of the night, FinTech of the Year, went to Tenpay Global because the fintech makes “cross-border payment and remittance easier, safer and more inclusive, helping more than a billion users in the process”, the judges said.
Big winners on the night include Micro Connect and Syfe, which both won two awards.
Other notable winners include Gregory Van from Endowus, who won Director of the Year. The Noe San from ModusOperandi, took home the Rising Star of the Year award. And Cyril Lalo from Ellipse, who bagged the Innovator of the Year prize.
Chia Hock Lai, chair of the Asia FinTech Award’s judging panel, said: “I would like to express my gratitude to all those who took the time to submit their entries for these significant awards, congratulate the outstanding winners, acknowledge the remarkable contributions of my fellow judges, and extend my appreciation to each and every one of you for your role in cementing our industry’s reputation as a truly world-leading force.”
Executives, the expert judging panel and other prominent people from within the industry networked, socialised and celebrated the amazing work of Asia’s best fintechs on a triumphant evening.
Josh Poyser, junior editor at FinTech Intel, said: “The Asia FinTech team would like to thank everyone who took part in making the awards a success.
