creditshelf has been honoured twice at AltFi Awards

Frankfurt (ots)

creditshelf, pioneer in the field of digital SME financing in Germany, wins the Runner-Up at the AltFi Awards in the category "Alternative Financial Platform of the Year". The award is presented annually to crowdfunding, peer-to-peer lending and invoice finance platforms that have driven innovation, expanded access to financial services, committed to transparency, delivered excellent all-round customer experience and have grown significantly over the past twelve months.

"We are very pleased to receive the award 'Alternative Financing Platform of the Year'. The award honours our business model, which I developed throughout many hours together with my founding partner and COO Dr. Daniel Bartsch. The AltFi Community unites the top experts of the alternative finance and FinTech world. To be honored by this community is a very special recognition for us and makes us proud of having built creditshelf together", explains Dr. Tim Thabe, CEO and founding partner of creditshelf.

In addition, creditshelf received another award in the category "PR / Marketing Department of the Year". The prize is awarded to companies for significant marketing campaigns in the field of alternative financing. The award recognizes campaigns that have significantly increased the company's profile in alternative finance/ fintech over the past year and demonstrated its industry expertise, to the benefit of its customers. In addition, those marketing departments are honoured that have wide-ranging experience, covering many niches within fintech, employing a number of well-known industry commentators/ representatives and who are excellent communicators and know how to deal with journalists.

"Marketing and communication for a FinTech company is a challenging task, especially if you set yourself the goal of being present 360 degrees for the target group and building your own media channels. We are active on numerous social media channels and have our own newsletter, mailing and telephone marketing campaings. In addition, we implement various event cycles and continuously work on our website as well as the further personalisation and automation of all our marketing activities. Online performance marketing is an important component of our digital process, but print media also complement our communications mix: with creditshelf magazine, we have created our own channel with high-quality content. In addition, we maintain annual partnerships with selected media houses. Investor relations and expert PR are also important components of communication for us. We are delighted that our comprehensive concept has been well received and that we have been honoured for our campaigns and our communications mix," continues Dr. Tim Thabe.
