The votes are in! The Round of 32 starts now.
There were some close matchups in the first round, and a big push by the underdogs. Crowdfunder knocked off #1 seed Motif for the biggest upset of the round, while Robinhood was the only #2 seed to advance!
Crowd favorites Grade My Advisor, LendUp, NerdWallet and Align Commerce all had strong performances but fell just short of moving on to the next round.
The top scorer overall was Acorns, followed closely by Prism, PayNearMe and Credit Karma. The votes represent a good mix of well-known fintech brands and newcomers that are obviously making an impression.
