Venly Wins The 2022 Deloitte Rising Star Award
Friday, 28th October, 2022 - At this year’s Fast 50 Awards Ceremony, blockchain technology provider, Venly, was awarded the Rising Star Winner after being shortlisted in a group of 10 companies last month. The Rising Star Award is part of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 competition and is awarded to companies that have been active in the technology sector for less than four years with notable revenue potential.
While blockchain technology continues to gain widespread recognition across industries, brands, and consumers alike, technical complexities remain a significant barrier with regards to adoption and accessibility.
Venly offers an end-to-end solution for developers and businesses, who rather than having to spend time and resources navigating an array of options, are equipped with a suite of technology solutions in one place.
Venly includes notable blockchains such as Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche, Hedera, Immutable X, and e-commerce giant Shopify as partners. Further, one of Venly’s key offerings includes the newly-launched Shopify NFT app, which enables Shopify store owners to create, mint and trade digital assets without the need for technical coding or blockchain expertise.
Tim Dierckxsens, CEO and Co-Founder, Venly said: “The recognition of our work in the blockchain space granted by the Deloitte Rising Star Award is demonstrative of the increasing demand for Web3 solutions that are accessible to mainstream business and end-users. Ultimately, Venly endeavours to provide a turnkey solution for developers, businesses, and individuals in an effort to to supply the necessary tools for everyone to experience the promise of Web3. We believe that our solutions will accelerate the widespread adoption of blockchain technology not only in Europe, but on a global level.”
Having successfully secured €21 million in Series A funding in April of this year and tripled their headcount in the past 12 months, Venly’s recent Deloitte Rising Star award win is indicative of their increasing prominence in the Web3 space.
