South African mobile payments startup Zoona has been listed on the FinTech 100 list compiled by KPMG following the company’s selection for the African Fintech Awards in October 2016.
Fintech Innovators, a collaboration between fintech investment firm H2 Ventures and KPMG Fintech, has released the 2016 FinTech 100 list – a report that gives an in-depth look into global companies that are taking full advantage of technology and driving disruption within the financial services industry.
Zoona was nominated in the Emerging Stars category, which showcases 50 of the emerging fintech stars of tomorrow. The list includes 29 companies from Europe, the Middle East and Africa, 35 from the Americas, 14 from Asia, 12 from the UK, and 10 from Australia and New Zealand.
“The last year has been an excellent one for Zoona in terms of international recognition. We are very proud to have won incredible awards on an international scale. Zoona won the Africa Entrepreneurship Award for Social Entrepreneurship, was a finalist in the Pricheck Fintech Awards and in the African Fintech Awards. Now we have earned another important accolade that further motivates us to carry on with our mission of helping communities thrive,” said Mike Quinn, chief executive officer (CEO) of Zoona.
“This is an awesome achievement and shows that our model of building financial inclusion and helping communities thrive is being recognised both locally and internationally.”
