25 June 2019: Crowd for Angels has beaten off tough competition to secure itself a place as a finalist in the Best Use of Technology category of the first-ever Growth Finance Awards.
The Growth Finance Awards launched this year in order to celebrate the companies providing “more than finance” to the UK’s growing businesses. It’s the first event of its kind, celebrating the innovative organisations breathing optimism into all regions of the UK by helping ambitious SMEs to scale new heights. These growth champions provide the vital capital inflows – around £79.7 billion last year – that help thousands of businesses to scale-up, boost productivity and create new jobs up and down the country.
Best Use of Technology Award
The Best use of Technology award highlights the growth finance providers who have optimised their products and improved their offering through the innovative use of technology. Crowd for Angels will compete for the award alongside three other impressive finalists: Henry Howard Finance, Simply and Tide Platform Limited.
Commenting on becoming a finalist in this prestigious awards event, Andrew Adcock, CEO said “It is an honour and pleasure to be shortlisted for the Best Use of Technology Award. This prestigious award demonstrates Crowd for Angels commitment to innovation and our continued expansion in the blockchain world. Our company has surpassed new heights thanks to the introduction of a dedicated cryptocurrency payment gateway, tokenised security projects and the ANGEL token, our very own ERC20 token.”
The winner of this award will be announced at an exclusive black-tie dinner hosted by Claudia Winkleman for over 400 guests on Wednesday 11 September at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London.
“We launched the Growth Finance Awards in order to recognise the champions of small business finance. We’re celebrating over 40 companies who are playing a vital role in the UK’s start-up and scale-up up ecosystem, championing and providing finance so that companies can realise their growth ambitions and reach their full potential,” says Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, the company behind the awards.
He adds: “I look forward to shining a much-needed spotlight on all of these providers on 11 September at the Royal Lancaster Hotel. To reach the finalist stage among such a stand-out set of entrants is a huge achievement.”
The finalists will now go on to a second round of judging by a panel of 28 independent and expert judges drawn from across the industry. The full list of categories can be viewed here.
