The financial center Frankfurt, represented by the FTGA organizers Frankfurt Main Finance, Business Angels Frankfurt RheinMain, TechFluence and the WM Group / Börsen-Zeitung, honors outstanding FinTech companies in various categories with the leading investor-side startup award.
The jury’s focus is on the affordability, scalability and exit ability of companies. It rates u.a. the business concept, competitive advantages, positioning, financial plan and management. Seed- / Early-Stage includes FinTechs, who have so far no or first sales and no or a first prototype can show. For the Late Stage category, companies with a cumulative turnover of at least six digits can apply. A clear seven-figure turnover as well as international expansion is the prerequisite for an appreciation in the category “Growth Stage”.
In addition to the award, the winners will receive a match for the Golden Garage “Challenge Cup” in the form of gold-plated water pump pliers. Günter Rothenberger, founder of the Günter Rothenberger Industries GmbH and inventor of the “R-System”, donated the trophies.
