BONITA SPRINGS, FL – March 14, 2024 –  Green Check (GC), the leading fintech connector, and technology and insights provider in the emerging cannabis market, today announced two new industry recognitions, further solidifying its position as a cannabis banking and fintech leader. GC was named “Best RegTech Company” in 2024 by Fintech Breakthrough Awards and a “Leading Pioneer in Cannabis Banking Solutions” by Global Health and Pharma’s 2023 Commercial Cannabis Awards.

Recognition from Fintech Breakthrough and the Commercial Cannabis Awards underscore GC’s pivotal role in expanding access to necessary financial and business solutions for cannabis-related businesses (CRBs), while ensuring financial institutions are equipped with the tools to confidently, compliantly and profitably serve CRBs.

“Green Check is at the center of cannabis and fintech, and these latest accolades highlight that synergy,” said Kevin Hart, founder and CEO of Green Check. “As demand for compliant financial and business solutions in the cannabis industry continues to soar, we remain committed to developing innovative solutions that serve the vertically integrated cannabis industry, from businesses to banks.

GC’s cutting-edge Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, paired with the company’s expert advisory services, help to solve the complex intricacies of banking the cannabis industry – an industry projected to exceed $100 billion by 2030 but one that remains deeply underserved. 

“Green Check is revolutionizing how financial institutions work with the cannabis market,” said Steve Johansson, managing director at FinTech Breakthrough. “Congratulations to GC, our ‘Best RegTech Company,’ as they empower financial institutions to create banking programs tailored to the needs of CRBs, while ensuring efficiency, transparency and scalability.”
