The judges praise was glowing for the team:

Rising Star of the Year: “The winner of Rising Star of the Year plays a huge role in growing their company’s presence around Asia and building high-performing teams and giving back to the startup community. They have developed an onboarding programme for new hires into the team, including training videos which have been watched by hundreds of employees over the last two years. A role model with a big future in fintech.”
