Contxto – Well, it appears as though Goonder is now officially the best fintech in Latin America. At least according to this year’s edition of the Innovation Awards Latam.
When it comes to showcasing regional talent, the Innovation Awards Latam is one of the most reputable events of the year. To recognize the Top 100 startups in Latin America, judges evaluated and test out solutions from 16 different countries.
Innovation Awards 2019
Goonder, the Argentine app democratizing investments with its trading platform, took top honors at the event. In the process, it competed against over 2,000 startups with the award ceremony taking place in São Paulo on September 25.
Not only did the app earn its first place within fintech, but it is also placed as the twelfth Most Innovative Startup of the Year.
“The award comes as a wonderful recognition for the great teamwork effort that is behind Goonder,” said Borja Méndez Muñoz, founder and CEO at Goonder, in a recent press release.
A little bit on Goonder
Founded in 2017, Goonder already has over 25 thousand users around the world. With an incredible UX, this interactive broker platform is perfect for anyone who wants to start investing in stocks.
Goonder’s easy-to-use interface generates daily algorithms in order to give users the best stock and crypto-trading experience possible.
Comparatively speaking, the startup’s business model is different than others in the ecosystem. With Goonder, both brokers and users have something to gain.
For example, brokers and trading platforms have access to millions of new customers through Goonder.
Whereas for users, if they have no idea how the stock market works, they can always practice and learn in “Virtual Goonder Mode.” As soon as they feel confident and ready to start investing, they can switch to “Real Mode” and start earning some real money.
As of right now Esfera IB and eToro are both working with Goonder. However, more trading platforms will reportedly be joining the app soon. So, you better keep an eye out for more brokers from Latin America, the U.S. and China!
Goonder keeps on innovating
Goonder just recently released its cryptocurrency alert feature, which makes the timing of the award even better according to Muñoz.
“It comes at a key moment since we have just completed the first phase of the project with the launch of the new Crypto Alerts service”
Additionally, the startup is preparing for what’s yet to come. Specifically, “Goonder 2.0, which will be a multi-channel platform with many new features and investment options for our users, to be released next year,” shared Muñoz.
I have to say that ever since I tested out the app, I knew Goonder had a lot to offer. This award only proves it’s potential. Without a doubt, I can’t wait to try Goonder Crypto Alerts service and to see what Goonder 2.0 has to offer.
