One has to confirm this spring is very fortunate for NAMU. On May 28, 2015 Citibank announced NAMU’s revolutionary solution has won “TOP INNOVATION BEST USER EXPERIENCE” in Citi Mobile Challenge EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, Africa). Following receipt of the award, NAMU has a unique opportunity to explore a commercial relationship with Citi and potentially scale the solution to the bank’s clients worldwide. The NAMU’s cutting-edge mobile banking platform was presented during the Citi Mobile Challenge Warsaw Demo Day in April, as one of the competition’s finalists. The idea of “Joyful banking”, which NAMU is promoting, was highly evaluated and warmly discussed during the event.

Numerous teams presented concepts to Citi executives and technology influencers at Demo Days held this spring in London, Warsaw, Jerusalem and Nairobi. Entries were appraised on their solutions’ impact, viability, user experience and functionality by an assembly of international judges.

Speaking from the stage, Heather Cox, Chief Client Experience, Digital and Marketing Officer for Global Consumer Banking at Citi said the organizers had received more than 740 applications across 101 countries for this competition. The quality of the ideas had been exceptional and they had seen a tremendous variety of solutions at Demo Days. Heather added these developers could help transform banking and fuel progress across other industries.

The NAMU social mobile platform is a multiple award-winning solution. The prize granted by Citi is NAMU’s second in a row to be received in May 2015 and follows the title of “Best of Show” acquired from the audience of a fintech conference FinovateSpring 2015 in Silicon Valley.

From now on, please call NAMU the award-winning solution!

Great news we are anxious to share! NAMU has been voted “Best of Show” by the audience of the FinovateSpring 2015 conference for our “Joyful Banking” mobile platform. This much-coveted trade award crowns a very successful stage of the company’s formation. We first presented our innovation late last year at Money 20/20 Launchpad360, wowing the global fintech industry. Today we are in advanced talks, finalizing proof of concept implementations with three global and regional banks. Wow!

In terms of methodology, only the conference audience members not associated with the demoing companies or with the organizer, voted. Attendees were encouraged to note their three favorites during each day of the two-day conference, traditionally attended by the leaders of the global fintech industry. They were supposed to rate the future winners of the award on the basis of demo quality and potential impact of the innovation demoed. The seven companies gaining the highest percentage of submitted ballots were named “Best of Show”.

“Exactly a year ago, I was in the audience at Finovate. On my way home, I decided to quit my job at Citibank and start up NAMU. The decision was worth the effort, which we engaged in creating the firm and in developing our solution. The appreciation we have just got from the industry leaders is the best reward for our work and the emotions involved. We feel strong and ready for the new challenge of making the NAMU platform a banking reality and not just an idea any more,” – said Thomas Ko, NAMU’s President and Co-Founder, when starting his award-winning presentation.

Thank you FinovateSpring Audience!
