About Fintech Diversity Radar

The Fintech Diversity Radar by findexable is a global initiative accelerating a progressive financial services industry, starting by benchmarking the role of women in scaling fintech firms and incumbent institutions.

The Fintech Diversity Radar – the world’s first dataset on gender diversity in global fintech – will map fintech startups, scale ups and incumbents, to determine the effectiveness of reducing exclusion among women team members, women entrepreneurs and women customers and establish best practice to advance progress – in support of the Sustainable Development Goals 5 and 17 to end women’s financial exclusion by 2030.

The Fintech Diversity Radar Survey is live. Get involved!
