Valiant selected as a finalist in inaugural Fintech Business Awards 2017

Valiant has been announced as a finalist in Momentum Media’s inaugural Fintech Business Awards. Valiant is in the running for two awards: Fintech Start up of the Year and Fintech Lending innovator of the Year.

“We are honoured to be included in this year’s Fintech Business Awards. It is humbling to be recognised for such prestigious awards and it is encouraging to see the fintech industry grow and thrive, particularly in Australia where startups are driving world class innovation and change,” said Valiant Finance CEO and Co-founder, Alex Molloy.

The awards night recognises outstanding innovation and entrepreneurship in the Australian financial technology sector. By identifying and acknowledging the leading individuals and organisations in the Australian fintech ecosystem, the event seeks to foster a strong culture of innovation.

“Fintech is providing new opportunities for startups to help consumers with finance related problems that established companies are unequipped to solve,” said Valiant Finance Co-founder, Ritchie Cotton. Valiant finance is a business loans marketplace that matches small business owners with Australian lenders, including banks and alternative finance providers.

The Valiant platform allows small business owners to access their loan options in less than 2 minutes. Once they have their result, they can compare and assess their loan options for free and connect with a lender when they are ready.

The winners will be announced at the awards night will be held on 24 February at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney.
