So far 2019 has been a pretty crazy year for the team at Illustrate Digital. We’ve already won one award and been nominated for a further two. And today, Wednesday 29th May, we’re really chuffed to announce that we’ve been nominated for yet another award!

It was announced this morning that we’re finalists for ‘Best Enabling Tech Company’ with FinTech Awards Wales.

As a business we do a lot of work in the FinTech sector. Some of our financial-based clients include Hodge Bank, Secure Trading and Pure Commercial Finance, with further partnerships and integrations with finance tech providers like PayPal, Codeweavers, iVendi and Tessitura.

That’s what makes this nomination important to us – the team have worked exceptionally hard to produce the best work for our clients and have proven ourselves to be an influencer in the FinTech space. And if you’re one of those clients that would label yourself a FinTech or financial services and you’re reading this, then thank you! Without the great work and challenges that you throw our way we wouldn’t be able to aim high with prestigious awards like this.

Of course, we’re in the wrong market to be labelled as a ‘finance technology company’ ourselves. But as a digital agency, specialising in development and integrations with other tech companies, we’ve forged a way as an enabling tech company who can add value to FinTechs.

If you’d like to see what we’re talking about, then check out our case study about Hodge Bank in the projects section of our site.

This also aligns nicely with Scott, our founder, having been recently announced as a member of the FinTech Wales board to help enable the FinTech sector in Wales to grow and have greater impact globally.

When do we find out if we’re winners?

The ceremony for FinTech Awards Wales will be held on Friday 19th July at Tramshed in Cardiff, a venue that in itself is home to a strong tech community in the capital city of Wales.

This is when we’ll find out whether we’re winners, but in the meantime we’ve got an interview to do! Aahh!

Beyond that we can’t wait to celebrate with the other finalists in July, of which we’ve got some pretty incredible competition.

Best wishes to every finalist involved and we’ll see you there!
