WHY THE AWARDS COMMITTEE SELECTED HER NOMINATION

Having left her former career working overseas in international development, Natalie developed an interest in financial inclusion and how payments were occurring in markets like Kenya. Inspired, she returned to Canada and co-founded her first start-up Payso before going on to co-found Finn.Ai – a white label virtual financial assistance company that is fueled by AI. At the cutting edge of technology the committee was impressed by Natalie’s’ entrepreneurialism in pioneering advanced AI technology. She is a respected thought leader, an innovator and above all an active role model for women in the tech community. Having been nominated and won many awards for her work and contributions to the fintech sector, the Committee are delighted to present Natalie Cartwright with our 2017 Innovation Award.
