OK, so we’re aware we’re at risk of getting into bragging territory… but we’ve got three new awards to add to our trophy cabinet (well, we don’t have one, but we should look into it now).
We picked up two awards at the Crowdcube awards, and we're absolutely ecstatic to have won “Best Personal Finance App” at the very prestigious and very proper British Bank Awards (other winners included the likes of Monzo, Natwest and Starling Bank).
So once again, team Chip dusted off our black tie gear, scrubbed up, and headed off to Cafe de Paris to scoop up some awards.
It was a great night, we got to meet some of our competitors and connect with potential partners too.
We were up against some tough competition, so when the nominees were read out, the tension was real. But we erupted into cheers when we took to the stage to thunderous applause.
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us. The help, support and belief we get from our community is powering us to the next level, and really puts us head and shoulders above our competition.
We’ve got big plans both for Chip in 2019.
First up is Chip 2.0, our shiny new update of the app that will be deployed gradually in the coming months. Currently 2,000 of our dedicated Chip Champions are testing the final beta version before we make the last tweaks and bug fixes and release to everyone.
Then there’s ChipX, our community lending platform that will see savers get solid returns and borrowers benefit from fairer lending.
So watch this space.
