Christian Perry wins FinTech award at the global TradeTech 2022 conference in Paris

Christian Perry, Founder & CEO of ChatterQuant and current Boise State COBE student, recently won the 2022 FinTech award during Europe’s “biggest buy-side equity trading conference”, TradeTech 2022.

What started as an opportunity for ChatterQuant to sponsor a booth at the conference, alongside other notable sponsors such as Bloomberg, Barclays, and Goldman Sachs, grew into an opportunity to share ChatterQuant with all conference attendees and compete for this award.

Perry pitched alongside other innovative companies in a variety of industries, such as Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) and Artificial Intelligence. Once each company had the opportunity to present, the audience voted on the most innovative and most likely to succeed in the marketplace. ChatterQuant secured this title, receiving over 50% of the votes.

This win comes shortly after Perry’s first place finish in both the 2022 Idaho Entrepreneur Challenge and Hackfort Tech Challenge.

Venture College would like to congratulate Perry on an incredible year so far. Perry serves as an inspiration to all entrepreneurs who walk through our doors in hopes of launching their ventures beyond the classroom. We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of his entrepreneurial journey, and can’t wait to see what’s next for ChatterQuant.
