David Defeats Goliath: Dot Dot Fire WINS Lord Mayor's Dragon Award 2023!
Yes, you heard us right... WE DID IT!!
Our tiny team of seven stood up against giants at the Lord Mayor's Dragon Awards this year, and we are delighted to share that we won!!
Last night, our co-founders Hilary, Franco, and Francis attended the awards ceremony for the Lord Mayor's Dragon Awards, for which Dot Dot Fire was a finalist for the Special Award for Leadership in Financial Literacy. Being a finalist was itself hugely exciting, as we were up against the likes of KPMG UK, and HSBC. Little did we know, the years of hard work developing games and trailblazing financial literacy education were about to pay off, and we were stunned when our name was announced as the WINNER!

The Lord Mayor's Dragon Awards recognize companies and initiatives that generate positive social impact for communities in London, and the Special Award for Leadership in Financial Literacy was given to us for our leading work deploying the Money Wise Game in London, where, since our arrival two years ago, we have hosted three Money Wise Challenges, launched our Lessons in over 30 schools, delivered free-of-charge digital and financial literacy training to over 50 teachers, and grown our global user base to over half a million.
As we wrap up a 2023 full of achievements, all we know is that we are aiming even higher now, and our little team is only just getting started. Keep an eye on our newsletter for new announcements, and take a look at our products section to be a part of the adventure!
