(“Triterras” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: TRIT, TRITW), a leading fintech company for commodity trading and trade finance, announced that its blockchain-enabled Kratos platform has won the Singapore Founder category of the FinTech Awards issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
The MAS FinTech Awards recognize innovative, high quality solutions that are able to address real needs in the financial industry. This year, MAS chose the theme of “Building Resilience, Seizing Opportunities, Emerging Stronger,” as a call to the fintech industry to play a greater role in addressing the challenges posed by COVID-19 and climate change.
The winners of the MAS FinTech Awards, which are supported by PwC Singapore, were selected from 326 submissions across 55 countries. An international panel selected the 12 winners in four categories, including Singapore Founder, ASEAN FinTech, Singapore Financial Institution and Global. The first place Singapore Founder award comes with a S$150,000 prize for Triterras.
“We are deeply honoured that the Monetary Authority of Singapore has chosen us for this recognition,” said Srinivas Koneru, founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Triterras. “We take great pride in our Singapore roots, and we see this award as an important validation of our mission to transform the global market for trade finance, and to help close the $1.5 trillion shortfall in trade finance availability for SMEs.”
