intersekt festival & Collab/Collide Summit

FinTech Australia, in partnership with Next Money and Fintech Victoria is proud to bring you the intersekt festival and Collab+Collide Summit. Together we aim to establish Australia as the global knowledge-exchange hub of fintech innovation and to foster synergies among market players to find solutions to implement and promote best practices.


The intersekt festival applies beyond the world of Fintechs and banks, it also applies to how Australia itself both collaborates and competes with other nations on a global stage. We collaborate to create unity in regulation to allow Fintech businesses to proliferate easily from one market to another, but we compete to create the best environment for capital and talent (which brings tax and immigration into the conversation), and to support our businesses successfully exporting overseas.
