Organized by the India FinTech Forum, the India FinTech Awards (IFTA) is a platform that celebrates and recognises the best innovations from fintech companies, where these companies by way of a live demo, get a chance to showcase their disruptive products and combine it with a sales pitch to draw investors, entrepreneurs, media and corporate leaders. In 2016, we won the award for ‘Leader in Corporate Innovation’ at the IFTA event and also, were among the shortlisted fintech startups that got an opportunity to show a live demo of latest product offerings at the event.
The IFTA recognized our CEO, Adhil Shetty’s efforts in conceptualising India’s first and leading world-class digital marketplace that is pushing the envelope with presence-less, paperless finance and reimagining the way people use financial services by adopting a mobile-first approach. The IFTA made a note of BankBazaar’s foray into South Asia, starting with Singapore.
Our CEO was nominated along with renowned individuals in the financial services sector. Other names include Mr. J A Chowdary (SCS and IT Advisor to CM, Govt. of AP), Mr. Dilip Asbe (COO, NPCI) and Mr. Deepak M Sharma (CDO, Kotak Mahindra Bank).
