Out of six finalists, Luvleen was chosen as the winner of this prestigious award from a panel of 35 judges, made up of a diverse group of leaders and experts in the financial services industry from companies such as Andreessen Horowitz, QED Investors, Upgrade, Cornerstone Advisors, and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to name a few. The judges worked to give this award to a female senior executive who has demonstrated outstanding leadership, integrity, performance and a commitment to fostering gender diversity within her company and to the industry as a whole. This award is a testament to both Luvleen’s leadership, as well as the continued growth and innovation demonstrated by BMTX, one of the first publicly traded neo banking fintechs in the country.
“I am truly grateful to have been awarded 2022 Fintech Woman of the Year. The last year has been monumental for the company as we became publicly traded, continued to grow our customer base, demonstrated strong profitability, and announced a strategic merger with First Sound Bank to begin our path of becoming a true fintech bank. Additionally, we are proud to share that at BMTX, women make up 50% of account holders in our higher education vertical. We understand how important it is to have a laser-focus on this segment of the market and strive to provide wealth-building digital banking through multiple product offerings and features, specifically keeping women in mind,” said Luvleen Sidhu, CEO and Founder of BM Technologies. “The other women in this category all represent incredible leadership, and it’s an honor to be amongst them.”
The LendIt Fintech Award Ceremony took place in Miami, Florida on February 8th, 2022, where Luvleen was personally presented with this award. LendIt Fintech hosted their 5th annual awards ceremony to honor the world’s leading Fintech influencers and innovators in 14 unique categories. https://www.lendit.com/nexus/2022/awards
