Finnish Fintech of the Year is The Upright Project

Helsinki Fintech Farm has been awarding domestic fintech companies to highlight and credit the groundbreaking work in the local fintech industry.

The award was submitted once again at the Digital Finance Forum on December 8th 2022.

The five finalists – Epassi, Fennoa, iconicchain, Snowfox AI and The Upright Project delivered a 4-minute pitch to the jury consisting of:
Isobel Nordström, Head of Nordic Financial Institutions, Corporate Bank at Citi
Sami Uski, Head of Business Development at Tietoevry Banking
Johanna Andersén, Strategy Lead at Fintech Farm Helsinki

The jury was in a tricky situation, as all the finalists were excellent but very different. “All of these companies are winners,” stated Isobel Nordström.

This time The Upright Project’s vision, potential, impact, and existing track record were enough to claim the title.

The winner’s vision is to develop the world’s best impact data platform to help investors, corporates, and individuals allocate their resources towards a net positive future.
