FinTech StartUps

Senjō Group, a privately held investment firm headquartered in Singapore, announced today its support and co-sponsorship of the Next Money FinTech Finals 2017 (FF17) as an Organising Partner alongside InvestHK and Startmeup.HK.

Next Money is a global fintech community that fosters the reinvention of finance through design, innovation and entrepreneurship. FF17 returns for its second year and is part of the StartmeupHK Festival which will take place throughout that week in various locations around Hong Kong.

The highlight of FF17 is the startup competition on the second day, where 24 hopeful startup teams will pitch in front of 1000 attendees that include angel investors, venture capital firms and fintech enthusiasts and a panel of expert judges. 

The semi-finals kickstarted in Sydney, Australia on November 10, and will continue to take place across 10 cities in the region throughout November and December. Senjō Group has confirmed that Tjaara and PushCommerce will represent the Group in the Singapore semi-finals, and Mindlogicx for Bangalore and Bijlipay for Mumbai.

Tjaara, or “Marketplace” in Arabic, is a Singapore-based B2B service that aims to help SMEs monetize relationships by offering easy access to Mandarin-speaking manufacturers and factory-direct prices.

PushCommerce is an advanced eCommerce platform that helps businesses build an online shop and accept payments for any kind of product or service.

Mindlogicx is a global knowledge management and delivery company that offers best-in-class technology products for examination management, knowledge management, skills enhancement and e-commerce framework through an intelligent and integrated social connect platform. 

Bijilipay is headquartered in Chennai, and is an end to end payment solutions provider with a vision to serve financial institutions and businesses through innovative payment solutions.

Sam Evans, Senjō Group's Head of Ventures, commented, "Senjō is very pleased to be a sponsor of Next Money's FF17 - a recognized event in the FinTech world. We are also proud to introduce four of our assets who will be dedicating their time and resources to participate in the Singapore, Mumbai and Bangalore semi-finals. This kind of competition is exactly what the industry needs for incubating an innovative and highly efficient next generation. Not to mention, FF17 aligns with our position as a FinTech investor who aspires towards nurturing high-growth and cutting-edge businesses of tomorrow."
