LONDON, June 20, 2024 – Last week, The Drawdown announced that Canoe Intelligence (“Canoe”), the financial technology company powering smarter alts management, had won the “Technology Innovation” category at The Drawdown Awards 2024.

The Drawdown Awards bring together GPs, LPs, and their service providers to celebrate outstanding achievements in private equity operations during 2023. The rigorous judging process is based on the views of a panel of leading private capital fund COOs, CFOs, CCOs, GCs, and CTOs. The “Technology Innovation” award, which falls within the service provider categories, were judged by chief financial officers, chief operating officers, heads of technology, and general counsels at private equity firms.

Canoe’s winning entry was announced on June 13, 2024, at an awards gala hosted at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London. Canoe was named a finalist in two award categories, “Data Technology” and “Technology Innovation,” and this year marks the fourth in a row where the firm was named a finalist in The Drawdown Awards programmes. In 2022, Canoe won for the “Technology: Data” category. In 2021, Canoe was also named the winner in the same “Technology Innovation” category.
