Putting the Screws on Start-ups

No one makes it to the shortlist without a thorough examination by our top-class jurors. You can be certain that nothing escapes their experienced eyes!


The broad-based Jury works on a voluntary basis and enjoys highly motivated, intensive and controversial discussions at Jury meetings. More often than not, the sessions last much longer than planned.


The Jury is made up of experienced fintech and insurtech experts, investors, bankers, lawyers, digital or innovation leaders and journalists.


The Jury members are characterised by a high level of expertise in their respective areas. Each member brings unique skills and perspectives that enrich the Jury's work and provide diverse perspectives.

"Metzler expects a movement of consolidation in the fintech industry through mergers and acquisitions as well as increased capital market financing through IPOs."
