UBS Future of Finance Challenge: We’re a Finalist!

Posted in News

UBS is in search of start-ups and growing companies that can change the way finance works and how banks meet their clients' needs – and Elsen is at the top of their list. We’re proud to announce that we’ve been selected as a regional finalist for the UBS Future of Finance Challenge!

After a global search for the most promising ideas and technologies in fintech, UBS selected only 11 companies as finalists for each of its regional competitions. We’ll be showing off Elsen nPlatform at the New York event on November 7 & 8, alongside the nine other finalists in the Americas. Regional events are also being held over the next couple months in London, Zurich and Hong Kong.

In order to select the finalists, judges at UBS evaluated companies based on the “6P” framework:

Proposition: How compelling is your idea?
Pioneering: How new and different is your idea or technology?
Potential: How big is the market opportunity?
Practical: How easy will it be to implement your idea or technology?
Plan: What are the next steps to get your idea or technology to market?
Proposer: What are your relevant capabilities and experience?

It’s another amazing validation for Elsen that UBS saw the promise of the platform we’ve developed, and our vision for helping anyone effortlessly harness vast quantities of financial data so they can make better investment decision.

Thank you to everyone at UBS who’s played a role in organizing the competition and judging applications. We’re looking forward to seeing you – and the innovations being developed by other finalists – in New York.
