Real estate crowdfunding platform, Wealth Migrate, announced on Friday it placed top 3 at the first annual African Fintech Awards, which was held on Thursday at the Sandton Convention Center. The new event notably celebrates innovators in finance and acknowledges the work they do to make a difference in the industry. Each of the fintech companies was nominated by experts, stakeholders, and investors from all of the globe and then the voting was generated by combined public and expert voting.
“We are incredibly proud of our team to have done so well in the first fintech awards that we’ve entered. It was great to be a part of such an important landmark event, which will impact the entire fintech community. We got to see the rising stars from the start-up scene and also those from a later stage who are scaling up – many of whom are expanding into Africa and globally. It was a great experience to meet our peers and network.”
Thomson went on to add:
“We are fiercely passionate about our vision to empower a billion people by 2020, by providing them with direct access to the best opportunities in real estate, globally. We make investing in high yield, institutional quality, first world real estate accessible, safe and affordable for everyone online. We can earn U.S. dollar based income and capital growth and do this by leveraging big data technology, global teams on the ground and the social power of collective buying through crowdfunding.”
