Customer

Best experience design: consumer

You saw something broken, and decided to fix it. Using a Jobs to be Done (JTBD) framework or a similar research methodology, you designed a product to solve a real-world problem using great UX, behavioural design loops and game mechanics.

Best experience design: business

You’ve designed a standout experience, combining customer research, great UX, and service design, to change the way businesses access and manage their money.

Best onboarding

This 11:FS Pulse award shows what good onboarding should look like - the best practice everyone should be aiming for. You’ve considered every step in the onboarding journey, online and offline, from signup to first transaction.

Purpose

Fintech for good

We’re celebrating the FS solutions that have purpose at their core. Whether it’s social good, sustainability or smashing the patriarchy, we want to see positive change.

Financial wellbeing

Making sure that our customers understand what they’re buying and how to interact with financial products is our industry’s single biggest challenge and responsibility. Through financial education or financial advice, companies that are doing this well create customer value as well as business value. 

Impact

Consumer game changer

We see more and more of the same companies year on year. But who’s solving a problem that no one else has? Whose impact on the market has been unique? Who’s given consumer money management a long-overdue shakeup? Who’s leaving others in the dust?

Business game changer

The company that changed the landscape of financial services for businesses, shifted the conversation, or challenged everyone else to up their game, will walk away with the game changer award.

Most progressive regulation

Regulation shapes FS. But which piece of regulation really moved the needle this year?

Technology

Best Technology as a Service

We’re celebrating the unsexy tech and infrastructure that solves complex financial problems, the tech that helps companies build truly digital and scalable solutions. This award spotlights the most innovative and disruptive tech providers.

Best use of web3

This one goes out to the web3 warriors, blazing a trail across DeFi, NFTs and UX.We’ll celebrate the work that incorporates web3 into financial services products in a way that truly taps into the potential of web3.

Open finance excellence

This award champions the best applications and developments in open finance to solve industry-wide problems effectively.

Embedded FS excellence

Solving real customer problems through the innovative use of embedded financial services, whether it’s a bank, fintech, DeFi or non-FS business, we’re looking at applications that helped move the industry forward.
