Dear Finboot Community,
As we wrap up another eventful year, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the incredible journey we've had together at Finboot. 2023 has been a year marked by consolidation, growth, and remarkable achievements that have propelled us to new heights.
Prestigious Accolades: The pinnacle of our year was reaching new heights with the honour of winning the prestigious Logistik Heute, PwC Germany-sponsored, Supply Chain Award in Frankfurt in November. This recognition is a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation. Additionally, we were privileged to share our insights at COP28 in Dubai, where we participated in a panel discussion invited by SABIC, showcasing our dedication to sustainable solutions.
Client Success Stories: Throughout the year, Finboot has been dedicated to working with both existing and new clients and partners, crafting bespoke blockchain-powered supply chain digital ecosystems. Our collaboration with esteemed clients such as Amey, CRDC, and Cepsa has been nothing short of inspiring. Notably, our partnership with SABIC has not only resulted in reduced costs and time but has also contributed to improved data integration, as highlighted in their third-quarter report and 2022 Annual Report. SABIC's commitment to sustainability is further echoed in their compelling video, "Using Blockchain to Deliver Sustainable Packaging."
Driving Blockchain Adoption: Our commitment to driving blockchain adoption in high-capital industries remains steadfast. Clients have consistently cited their desire for greater visibility and traceability of raw materials, the need to embed trust across the supply chain, and staying ahead of ESG reporting regulations as the driving forces behind their investments in blockchain solutions. Finboot continues to empower organizations to embrace the digital future confidently.
Engaging Conversations and Insights: This year, we had the privilege of engaging in insightful conversations with industry leaders. The interview with Gestamp's Chief ESG Officer, Ernesto Barcelo, and Agile Agent at Cepsa Química, David Carvajal, provided valuable insights into the transformative power of blockchain in supply chains. These conversations are a testament to our commitment to fostering collaboration and sharing knowledge within our community.
Policy and Regulatory Influence: In the latter half of 2023, our Executive Chair and Co-Founder, Nish Kotecha, engaged in meaningful discussions with policymakers in the UK Parliament, further establishing Finboot as a thought leader in shaping technology policy.
Brand Evolution: In June, we proudly unveiled our new brand, symbolizing Finboot's commitment to evolution and innovation. The new brand reflects our dynamic approach to blockchain technology and our dedication to staying at the forefront of industry trends.
Expanding Our Expertise: To further strengthen our capabilities, we welcomed Dr. Bettina Uhlich to our Board of Directors and John Fletcher to our advisory board in 2023. Their expertise will undoubtedly contribute to our continued growth and success.
As we approach the holiday season, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our clients, partners, and the entire Finboot community for your continued support. May the festive season bring joy, reflection, and anticipation for the promising journey that lies ahead in 2024.
Wishing you a joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year!
