GoalsMapper wins Singapore FinTech Festival Global FinTech Award
Fintech startup GoalsMapper emerged as a winner at the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) Global FinTech Awards organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore and Singapore FinTech Association. The prestigious Awards held on 11 November 2021 was among the key highlights of the SFF, which is the world’s largest FinTech event.
The Global FinTech Awards recognises ground-breaking solutions that have enabled the financial sector to rebound from the impact of the pandemic, including initiatives that have helped create new growth opportunities, transform industry practices, and promote financial inclusion. The theme for this year’s Awards was “Emerging from a pandemic, the road to recovery”.
GoalsMapper was selected as the winner in the SFF Global FinTech Awards (Singapore Founder) 2021 category by an international panel comprising industry experts across multiple domains. A total of 298 submissions were received across all award categories. Winners were evaluated based on four criteria: (i) impact; (ii) practicality; (iii) interoperability; and (iv) uniqueness and creativity.
Dato’ Wayne Chen, Co-Founder and CEO, GoalsMapper, said: “GoalsMapper is honoured to win this prestigious award. It is a testament to our impact and vision of redefining financial planning to empower everyone to make better financial decisions. This award win is also timely. Having grown sustainably and profitably with no external funding, the foundation is laid for us to look for like-minded investors and partners to accelerate our international expansion plans.
