Take your FinTech Startup Global w QLD’s Chief Entrepreneur Plus Holiday Drinks
December 20, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
How can Queensland have a global perspective on FinTech?
A recently article and Digital Innovation Report (https://www.innovationaus.com/2018/09/Get-over-yourself-Australia) showed Australia is currently capturing 34% less value in the fastest growing industries in the global digital economy and is in danger of falling further behind in the next wave of digital growth. How can the Queensland FinTech ecosystem buck this trend with a global growth mindset that thinks global from day one?
We’ll hear how Leanne Kemp created a global company in Everledger and her vision for Queensland on the world’s innovation landscape in her role as the new Queensland Chief Entrepreneur.
