Collaborating to achieve FinTech leadership for Australia
FinTech Australia was started by the Fintech Community.
FinTech Australia is all about the Australian Fintech Startup Community - Fintech Startups, Hubs, Accelerators and VCs. We are a national, not-for-profit organisation, run for the benefit of our members across all corners of Australia.
Our Journey so far
The Fintech Community rallied around urgent Policy reforms that were needed to ensure Australia remained competitive in Fintech. They collaborated on a landmark Recommended Reform Paper, endorsed by over 35 Fintech organisations, submitted to key Government Ministers.
Following consultation on our Reform Paper, the Turnbull Government declared Fintech to be a national priority, announcing the formation of the Fintech Advisory Group to provide policy advice to Treasury and Regulators.
FinTech Australia held its inaugural AGM and elected its first Committee, three of whom are on the Fintech Advisory Group. In June 2016, FinTech Australia announced the appointed of its inaugural CEO.
FinTech Australia holds its first major event - the Collab/Collide Summit in Melbourne - and releases the result of the first national census of the fintech industry.
Our vision is ambitious!
We want to make Australia one of the world’s leading markets for Fintech Innovation andInvestment. We do this by collaborating with Stakeholders to create the best possible regulatory environment, and by fostering an ecosystem of supportive partners and networks so Fintech companies can thrive and grow in Australia.
Challenging existing structures and driving policy reform is a key priority for the Association.
FinTech Australia advocate on behalf of our members, both locally and globally, to attract the support they need to win.
A core part of our action plan is bringing all parts of the financial technology
How do we make Australia win in FinTech?
