The RFI Foundation, in partnership with the Swiss Finance + Technology Association, Finocracy and the Responsible Finance & Investment (RFI) Summit partners, launched the Support Disruption for Good (SDG) Challenge to find the most promising ethical, responsible or Islamic FinTech innovation and connect them to the leading institutions in the responsible finance industry.
The SDG Challenge will remain open until March 17. All applicants will be judged against a transparent set of criteria by an independent judging panel drawn from across the responsible finance and FinTech industry. During the review process judges will evaluate the ability of each entrant to effectively scale, contribute to financial inclusion, contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals while being financially sustainable.
Three finalists will be selected to present their innovation on 4 May 2017 during the RFI Summit in Zurich. Delegates will cast the final vote to select the winning innovation. The winner of the SDG Challenge will have the chance to work closely with the judging panel as well as gain exposure during the Summit and have their story told to the wider responsible finance industry after the Summit ends.
