The editors of cashless.pl are working on the sixth edition of the Map of Polish Fintech. This is the oldest project of its kind on the Polish market, which gathers information about all the most important fintechs in Poland in one place.

The Cashless Fintech awards, like the Map of Polish Fintech, are now six years old. To mark the occasion, we have decided to slightly change the rules for nominations for the categories. In the past, they were selected by the cashless.pl editorial team. This time, however, we decided to give this privilege to the readers. Anyone can nominate their candidate in one or all of the categories. Just send an e-mail with your justification to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are welcome to do so. We are waiting for submissions until next Friday, 21 April 2023, at 6 p.m.
