Tier One People Sponsors Of Fintech Awards 2019.
Traditionally the awards focused on recognising grass roots, Fintech startups. With Unicorn companies like AfterPay and the rapidly growing Brighte now serious businesses, the awards symbolised the maturity of the Fintech sector in Australia.
Keynote speaker of this years awards was Todd Forest, Managing Director, nabventures. Todd passionately spoke of the opportunities in Fintech and made the bold claim that one day a Fintech will acquire a major bank (Todd illustrating his theory with the story of AOL buying Time Warner).
Big shout out to our friends at Split, Brighte, Xinja, Wisr, Arctic Intelligence and Checkbox who all won awards.
