Calgary fintech awards program begins with $1 million commitment by DC Bank.

Digital Commercial Bank (DC Bank) and Platform Calgary have announced a partnership to establish a new annual non-dilutive Fintech Award to further the advancement of Fintech startups, support the startup ecosystem and position Calgary as a global hub for innovation.

The Fintech Award will support, champion and celebrate local and global Fintech companies that demonstrate a strong value proposition for the Calgary region through the creation of jobs, economic growth and diversification. 

Calgary-based Digital Commerce Bank is the first financial partner of the program with a commitment of $1 million over four years. DC Bank, Platform Calgary and other partners will support winners for a period of one year after the Fintech Award through customized mentorship, partnerships, and valuable complementary and discounted services.

The Fitech Award process is expected to open for applications in Spring 2022 and conclude with a public Award Ceremony in November 2022.

DC Bank is the lead sponsor of the program and has committed a million dollar investment over four years, with Platform Calgary operating the Award program. 

DC Bank and Platform Calgary are actively seeking additional sponsors and partners for financial and in-kind contributions towards the Fintech Award.
