GoHenry scoops FinTech Breakthrough Award

We’re proud to announce we’ve won the coveted 2023 FinTech Breakthrough Award for ‘Best Financial Education Platform’. 


Now in its seventh year, the FinTech Breakthrough Awards program celebrates outstanding FinTech products, services, and companies. The premier awards program was founded to recognize FinTech innovators in a range of categories from digital banking to personal finance, wealth management, investment, and more. This year’s awards attracted over 4,000 nominations across the globe.


The program looks for innovative solutions and companies that address a real need, solve a complex problem or seize an opportunity to revolutionize a market or industry. In the spirit of technology breakthrough, the awards highlight the standout products and services in the crowded FinTech marketplace. All entries are judged by a panel of industry experts.


“The personal finance industry is largely dominated by what adults want or need, and products for kids or family finance come second. Many young people are motivated to educate themselves in key financial topics, but struggle with applying their financial knowledge to real-world scenarios,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, FinTech Breakthrough.


“GoHenry’s debit card and mobile app challenge the norm, empowering kids to take the reins on their own financial education, with the support of their parents, and have fun while doing it. GoHenry breaks through barriers by smoothly transitioning the value of what kids learn on the app into real life.”


Commenting on our award, Dean Brauer, co-founder and US President, GoHenry said: “We believe in the importance of early exposure and universal access to financial education. Our mission is to make every kid smart with money so we’re proud to be the leading service that helps kids understand everything from wants vs needs and creating strong savings habits, to learning to budget and how money can help others. Empowering kids with a real-world, engaging  educational experience can inspire a lifetime of financial well-being.”


It’s great to have our work recognized. Of course, we’re over the moon. But we know we couldn’t have won this award without the hard work and dedication of our team. Or, without you, our GoHenry customers who we continuously collaborate and co-create with. 


So thank you. And just so you know the success hasn’t gone to our head, we’ll keep at it. Because this kind of recognition inspires us to do more and there’s always room for improvement. Watch this space!
