Putting Norwegian impact fintech on the map
The cluster recently mapped the impact fintech scene in Norway together with our other Nordic Fintech partners, Deciphering the Nordic Impact Map, which was launched at CPH Fintech Festival this year. As an extension of this, an international jury of experts in finance, innovation and tech selected the best Nordic impact startups within five categories. Oslo Philanthropic Exchange took home the prize in the “Financing Impact” category.

- We are extremely pleased to have a company working within this space in the cluster. Professionalizing fundraising for humanitarian organisations on a global scale, by developing a platform connecting NGOs with the global financial community, is an excellent example of a “fintech for good” company. OPX will definitely be a valuable addition and inspiration to the NCE Finance Innovation ecosystem, says Rea Parashar, Head of Innovation and Communication at NCE Finance Innovation.
