Before we get to the good stuff, we wanted to offer context which underscores just how much of an achievement it is to make this shortlist. This year there was a massive 237 entries for the Finnie Awards across all 18 categories (not including Biggest Raise of the Year). That’s 30 per cent more than last year.
Payments disruptor Afterpay rocked the industry when it took out fintech organisation of the year at the Finnies for the second year in a row last year. Now, the global buy now, pay later company has become the first winner to sponsor the Finnies and is a major sponsor for the 2019 Awards.
