There's no doubt RegTech began its journey firmly in the financial services sector. The last few years has seen a growing number of other industries and indeed Government across all spectrums develop an appetite for RegTech to counter poor efficiency, grow productivity, foster transparent, real-time information to benefit citizens, shareholders and build better businesses. 

Q&A with members and guests of The RegTech Association

CEO
The RegTech Association


APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED          

Each year, The RegTech Association awards a Founder-Led RegTech firm with best pitch by awarding their #AccelerateR award. This year, as we see momentum building around Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) impacts for companies and institutions across multiple sectors and the growing level of importance of ESG to investors, we think this is an opportunity to engage with early stage RegTech companies. Have you aligned with ESG and are you ready to deploy RegTech solutions that can demonstrate a deep connection and potential impact that underpin ESG goals and objectives? If so this is for you.

This Award recognises the best RegTech startup pitch and receives our #AccelerateR 2022 Award. We are looking for an early-stage superstar! We will be looking for those who have been able to best articulate the problem they solve, the solution and market appetite, the business model and scalability, relevance to ESG and most of all, the best pitch delivery on the day. Should you be selected as a finalist, your company will be amplified on digital media, the ultimate winner will receive specific digital assets and be included in a multi channel release. Rather than awarding a trophy, we will make a donation to the First Nation’s Foundation – an Australian Indigenous Financial Literacy Foundation – thus supporting greater financial inclusion.

Applications will be invited from early stage RegTech solutions providers who are solving an institutional, business-related or regulatory problem and who can clearly demonstrate that their solutions make a significant impact on Environmental Social & Governance (ESG) performance. You must have a minimum viable product (MVP).
