finleap celebrates 2019 in style – by bringing back the ’90s!
The whole finleap ecosystem got together and celebrated the successes of 2019 at the annual finleap Christmas party. This year, finleap traveled back in time to a colorful era. The theme of this year’s party: Ugly ’90s! A decade that was marked by major changes – similar to the ever-changing and further developing finleap ecosystem. As a tradition, all fins (finleap employees) and team members of the ecosystem took the dress code of the party seriously. The costumes included neon colors, oversized t-shirts, tattoo bracelets, and the Spice Girls. Let’s recap the finleap party of the year!
Warming up for 2020
In line with local Christmas traditions, the night kicked off with a ‘Glühwein’ reception followed by a festive Christmas dinner with employees from the finleap abc (finleap assets, finleap build and finleap connect). Ramin Niroumand, finleap’s number one fin, thanked his team for its hard work in 2019 and motivated everyone for what is to come in 2020. Ambitious goals just waiting around the corner.
And as the leaders of the entertainment industry award the best artists of the year with prizes, Ramin awarded the stars of the ecosystem for their outstanding work.
And the winners are:
? Audience Prize – PAIRFinance
? Best International Act – financeAds
? Going Gold – Elinvar
? Best Choreography – finleap GmbH
?️ Best Support Act – Perseus
?? Band of the Year – finleap connect GmbH
? Best Dance Act – solarisBank
✨ Marketing Rockstar – Penta
? Best Performance – ELEMENT
? Rock Icon – BillFront
? Newcomer of the Year – Joonko
Many of the guests also competed in an ecosystem-wide costume contest either as a group or as a solo entrant. As in previous years, the costume contest was rather competitive. See below the most impressive looks of the night, including the nominees and winners of the contest.
fins love a good party!
It would not be a proper finleap party if there was not some karaoke and of course dancing, dancing, and more dancing! Just as the saying goes: “Work hard. Play hard”.
Thanks to the whole finleap ecosystem who made 2019 and this party a true success! See you in 2020!
