Douglas, Isle of Man, June 27, 2023 – SolutionsHub is thrilled to announce its sponsorship of the Isle of Man FinTech Innovation Challenge Finale. The event, hosted by Digital Isle of Man, is set to take place on Thursday, June 29, 2023, at the Comis Hotel & Golf Resort, Mount Murray.
The FinTech Innovation Challenge is a global competition that invites participants to provide cutting-edge technology-based solutions to a range of challenges. Finalists are rewarded with the opportunity to work closely with the Government and regulatory bodies, while utilising the Isle of Man’s optimal demographic as a testbed for new technologies.
The Challenge extends beyond an ordinary competition; it facilitates a unique opportunity for its finalists to work in close alignment with Government and regulatory authorities, while harnessing the Isle of Man’s favourable demographic as an incubator for pioneering technologies.
As a show of the Challenge’s ripple effect in the industry, Crucial Compliance, a Finalist, has decided to establish a presence on the Isle of Man. The company, a front-runner in delivering comprehensive compliance services and implementing safer gambling strategies, views its expansion as a commitment to the growing and diverse needs of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and responsible gambling. This development underscores the Challenge’s role as a catalyst for growth and strategic expansion, further solidifying the Isle of Man’s position as a supportive hub for FinTech innovation.
“Our sponsorship serves as a clear testament to our unwavering commitment to bolstering innovation and propelling the growth of FinTech on the Isle of Man,” said Lee Hills, CEO of SolutionsHub.
