Exizent has been ranked number three in the top 50 Fintech businesses and start-ups in the UK.
TechRound’s Fintech50 ranks fintech businesses and start-ups in the UK for their innovation and contribution to the UK’s fast-growing start-up scene, highlighting the diversity and success in the sector.
Glasgow based Exizent – the first ever platform that connects data, services and the network of people involved when someone passes away – is the top-rated Scottish business in the Fintech50 and the only one in the top 10.
The announcement follows a week of judging from an expert panel including Sharon Miles and Simon Rabin of Chip, Jelle Pol of Dusk Network and Paula Grynczel of Capital on Tap.
Other finalists in the Fintech50 include pension platform PensionBee, banking service provider, BankingCircle, crypto portal Bitstamp, company smart cards Pleo and Soldo.
The judges commended the innovation and hard work of all the entries and the entrepreneurs, especially in their efforts to solve real-life problems through Fintech.
TechRound co-founder Daniel Tannenbaum said: “Once again, we were extremely impressed with the calibre of entries, with some of the most outstanding Fintech companies across payments, budgeting, finance and cryptocurrencies sharing their stories.”
Nick Cousins, CEO and co-founder of Exizent said: “We are so pleased that our platform has been recognised by the prestigious Fintech50; it is testament to the exceptional team of people we have here at Exizent. To be ranked number 3 in the UK – alongside big names like PensionBee and Pleo – is a real honour, and strengthens our belief in tech for good and in the platform becoming a fundamental part of the bereavement ecosystem.”
TechRound co-founder David Soffer commented: “The UK continues to be the powerhouse for all things start-ups and Fintech. The TechRound Fintech50 highlights the brilliant concepts and how they have been executed by some very talented people. Above all, this list should act as an inspiration to future Fintech leaders and entrepreneurs and help us create a society where the benefits of Fintech are fully utilised.”
