As 2019 comes to an end, we would like to share just a few of our corporate highlights from the year. We had a tremendous year as a company, and none of this would have been possible without our amazing team, partners, and customers! We are so thankful and proud of what was accomplished, and we are excited to carry this momentum into 2020. Here is just a brief recap of Year 2 of the Hydrogen journey…
We were nominated for numerous awards this year, and below are some of the awards we were lucky enough to win:
- Fast Company World Changing Ideas
- Tearsheet: Best Bank & Fintech Partnership Award (TD & Hydrogen)
- BBVA Open Talent National Winner (USA)
- Sia Partners APIficator Competition: Best Banking & Finance APIs
- WealthTech 100 by FinTech Global
Programs / Accelerators
We were also invited to join various fintech programs and accelerators. These include:
- Mastercard Start Path Program
- Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA)
- Masschallenge FinTech Accelerator Program
- South Africa Global Fintech Hackcelerator by KPMG Matchi
Our amazing product, design, and development teams were busy this year releasing new products, building new integrations, and adding new features that make it easy for any organization to quickly build new fintech products and solutions.
We made significant updates to our fintech acceleration platform, Atom. Building fintech applications is time-consuming, expensive, and extremely difficult. Atom allows organizations to quickly get fintech products to market, at a fraction of the cost.
In October of this year, we released our decentralized finance (DeFi) blockchain platform, Molecule. This buildout was based on client requests for DeFI features embedded in the traditional apps they were configuring on Hydrogen Atom. This week, we gave a 2019 recap and sneak peak of what’s in store for 2020.
As demand for our platform continued to rise in 2019, we wanted to make it easy for any organization to leverage Hydrogen for their fintech needs. This year we created new programs specifically tailored to the needs of startups and enterprises.
Startups can now get started for free with our Build Program. Innovation labs at larger organizations can leverage our Experiment Program to quickly build POCs. Our Expand program is for mid-size organizations that want to quickly add new fintech capabilities, while our Transform Program is for larger enterprises that want to access the full functionality of the Hydrogen platform.
A few of the companies that we welcomed onto the platform this year include: City National Bank (top 50 US bank), Securian Financial (Fortune 500 insurer), and Tangerine Bank (nearly 2 million clients in Canada).
Partnerships and integrations are important for any organization to succeed. Here at Hydrogen, that is no different. Integration partners, resellers, and implementers play a valuable role for us and our customers. This year we announced a few key relationships:
We have many more clients, partnerships, integrations, and strategic relationships to announce in 2020, so please subscribe to our blog to receive these updates!
That’s a wrap!
2019 was an amazing year for us. We added 20+ new team members – and we are actively hiring now! We attended and spoke at dozens of events. We have remained profitable, and the best part of all….we are just getting started!!
