Weavr, embedded finance experts, has been named in the TechRound 100 – an annual competition that celebrates the most successful and innovative startups in the UK.
This year’s TechRound 100 competition saw more than 3,000 applications reviewed by a panel of expert judges which included startup figures (Apprentice winner Mark Wright investor Roei Samuel (Connectd), and TedX speaker Perrine Farque), other startup peers and former winners (Sammy Rubin of YuLife, Jonathan Lister Parsons of PensionBee, Michel Andre of Banking Circle), and Dana Leigh (TechRound editor).
Alex Mifsud, CEO and co-founder at Weavr, said: “We are thrilled to be part of the TechRound 100 and will be taking full advantage of the platform that TechRound offers us to broadcast the benefits of embedded finance to the digital ecosystem.
“Embedded finance is now an engine of digital transformation and this programme will help us connect to and empower digital innovators across the UK and beyond.”
Previous winners of the TechRound 100 include the likes of Zoom, Revolut, Pleo, Too Good To Go, Coconut, Vinehealth, and allplants. The competition has often highlighted future tech giants well before their time, with the likes of TikTok, Cinch, Cazoo, and Gousto featuring in the list more than 3 years ago.
The judges of TechRound 100 said, “The TechRound 100 is the flagship event of the year, highlighting the hard work and success of UK startups, businesses, and entrepreneurs. With more than 3,000 applications this year, we hope that our top 100 list acts as testament to the UK startup scene and also provides inspiration for the next generation of startups and entrepreneurs.
“We saw Weavr as a key player in enabling businesses to integrate any financial service anywhere their customer needs it which is how they secured their spot firmly in the TechRound 100.”
Recently, Weavr confirmed a strategic partnership with Finway to issue physical and virtual cards for SMEs. Weavr currently powers platforms like Thanks Ben and Myskillcamp, specialising in sectors including health and wellness, education, real estate, and future of work.
