Finally getting to an in-person awards ceremony, courtesy of UK FinTech

Last night, our Head of Business Development UK, Julian Wavell attended the UK FinTech Awards.

We were a finalist for the Diversity and Inclusion category. To be included alongside companies such as AkoniHubClausematchDigital Identity Net, and OpenPayd was an honour.

Congratulations to the winner, OpenPayd!

At Datactics we continually pride ourselves on being inclusive and diverse, as we believe these are two of the biggest contributors behind the growth of our company. The tech sector traditionally has only 19% women, so with double that we’re proud to be bucking that trend. Even so, we recognise there’s so much more we can do, and this award nomination gives us the impetus to keep going on the right track!
