Announcing the Hosts of the 14th Annual Plutus Awards!

The Plutus Foundation is thrilled to welcome the hosts of the 14th Annual Plutus Awards, Kevin Matthews II and Dorethia Kelly!

The Plutus Awards ceremony will be a virtual production this year. This format will allow the ceremony to be accessible to a wider audience, and we’re looking forward to involving as many of our finalists this year as possible. Throughout the entire year, the Plutus Awards will celebrate a diverse community of financial content creators, and the excitement will culminate in a unique presentation on Friday, September 22, 2023, at the conclusion of the virtual Plutus Impact Summit.

Kevin and Dorethia will continue in a tradition set by our previous hosts throughout the years, which have included Kevin McKee, Ashley Jacobs, Matt Giovanisci, Bethany Bayless, Sandy Smith, Joe Saul-Sehy, and The Debt Free Guys. Our new hosts will certainly bring their own flair to the show as experienced public presenters, and the team can’t wait to see the ideas they bring.

Sponsorships are available for the Plutus Awards. While our Awards Panel is finalizing the categories for this year’s Plutus Awards, we are opening up our trophy sponsorships for content creators and start-ups that are looking to support the Plutus Awards at an affordable (and mostly tax-deductible) level — and receive recognition for doing so.

Reserve your awards category here.

If you’re looking for a sponsorship level that comes with more perks, a few other options are available. Contact us for more information.
