Toronto fintech Uplinq has been named a Benzinga Global Fintech Awards finalist for the coveted “Best New Product” category, joining other industry leaders like Obsidian, Agile Trading Technologies, and TurnKey Lender.
Uplinq is a global credit assessment and scoring platform for SMB lenders. Last month Uplinq secured a $1.25 million investment from ATX Venture Partners – an early-stage venture capital firm based in Austin, Texas.
“We are honored and excited to be in the running for this distinguished award with such a reputable organization,” said Ron Benegbi, Founder and CEO of Uplinq.
“Our technology is changing the lending ecosystem for small business owners, and we will continue to work with SMB lenders to ensure they are making the most accurate and fair decisions for entrepreneurs with the help of our advanced data sets.”
Benzinga, a widely read financial media outlet that draws over four million readers per month, has hosted its Global Fintech Awards for eight consecutive years to spotlight the groundbreaking companies and executives who are revolutionizing the fintech industry.
The awards program is a part of the Benzinga Fintech Deal Day conference, filled with thousands of industry leader attendees gathering for a day of networking.
The recognition is a testament to Uplinq’s advanced risk assessment capabilities and a major opportunity to showcase the need to expand credit access to unbanked, minority, and all protected class small business owners globally.
