Valiant named a finalist for Lending Platform Innovator of the Year at Fintech Business Awards

The awards recognise 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.

Valiant prides itself on bringing its cutting-edge technology platform to the Australian small business market, empowering thousands of business owners to find a personalised rate to suit their needs.

Valiant has a team of credit specialists on hand, in case the business owner wants to discuss their options in detail.

The Valiant team is excited to be featured in a stellar lineup of finalists for the Lending Platform Innovator of the Year award, alongside My Local Broker, Simpology, HashChing, Kubio Group, Marketlend and Othera.

The winner will be announced at the awards night on Thursday 22 March 2018 at the Sofitel Wentworth.
