KPMG and H2 Ventures selects Kredivo as one of the top 100 fintech startups globally and the Singapore Fintech Festival selects Kredivo as the top ranked fintech startup in Southeast Asia.
Jakarta, 22 November 2018 – Kredivo, Indonesia’s leading digital credit card for millennials, has been recognized in two prestigious lists: KPMG and H2 Ventures Global Top 100 Fintech Startups and Singapore Fintech Festival’s #1 Regional Startup in the SME category. Kredivo’s recognition on these prestigious global and regional rankings reflects its leadership position in the Indonesian and regional fintech ecosystem.
KPMG and H2 Ventures Global Top 100 ranking is a curated list of the 100 most innovative fintech startups across the world. Kredivo is the only consumer lending company from Southeast Asia to make the list. The Singapore Fintech Festival, the largest fintech festival in the world, showcases fintech innovation regionally and globally, and recognizes startups that have been making impact at a regional and global scale. Co-organized by MAS (Monetary Authority of Singapore) and the private sector, the rigorous selection process, run by PwC, involves a highly regarded jury of industry experts. Kredivo’s recognition as the #1 startup in Southeast Asia in the SME category is representative of the quality of the product and the impact that Kredivo is driving at scale by enabling access to credit for millions of millennials for the first time.
Commenting on this recognition, Akshay Garg, cofounder and CEO of FinAccel, said, “Access to credit is a huge problem for Indonesian millennials, and we are solving for it through convenience, transparency and fairness. We are extremely grateful that our work is being recognized at a global and regional scale. We look forward to making an even bigger impact in the coming years.”
