MEDICI is proud to launch an international hunt for the world’s most innovative startups building the future of regulatory compliance in the financial services industry. MEDICI Top 21 – RegTech Awards continues series of awards run by MEDICI and its partners, which have seen a tremendous success in cross-segment chapters: MEDICI Top 21 – AI Awards, MEDICI Top 21 – Blockchain Awards, and MEDICI Top 21 – InsurTech Awards.
Dedicated to researching and examining ideas, people, and companies using technology to change financial services, Team MEDICI invites RegTech startups from around the world at any stage, founded between 2007 and 2017, to apply for the MEDICI Top 21 – RegTech Awards.
We are also excited to announce our European sponsor, EY, who will be co-hosting a Top 21 awards ceremony with MEDICI and a RegTech panel at the FinTech Stage Festival in Milan on May 9, 2018.
Applications will be accepted until April 20, 2018, 11:59 PM EST.
The winners of MEDICI Top 21 – RegTech Awards will be contacted by MEDICI Team by Mid-May. At that time, the MEDICI Team will provide detailed information on the next steps of the Award.
Startups will undergo rigorous screening, after which shortlisted companies will be analyzed by MEDICI’s resident analysts, partners, and external industry leaders in order to identify the winners of MEDICI Top 21 – RegTech Awards. Startups will be ranked on a scale of 1 to 10 based on the following criteria:
Scalability across segments and geographies.
The uniqueness of the solution and the ability to fill the supply gap.
Existing partnerships, clients, and products for commercial use.
Engagement with regulators – through sandboxes, innovation programs, hackathons, etc.
Level of enhanced productivity at customers’ end.
An average score will then be calculated for each company. The score will determine the ranking of every one of seven finalists from a respective region: Americas, EMEA, and APAC.
MEDICI also welcomes global RegTech thought leaders as advisors for regional MEDICI Top 21 – RegTech Awards:
Advisor for Americas: Patricia Kroondijk
