92: World Nomads, Simon Monk

By Dexter Cousins on 10/09/2021

In episode 92 of Fintech Chatter Podcast Dexter Cousins is joined by a very special guest, Simon Monk co-founder of World Nomads, Australia’s first Insurtech.

In this new feature show, Dexter interviews a Fintech pioneer from a time before the word even existed.  Guests share their journey and how they launched, scaled and successfully exited a Fintech business when there were no iPhones, no Stripe, no Facebook, no Twitter and no AWS!

Travel has always been a big part of Simon’s life,  he’s been dreaming about what's over the horizon for as long as he can remember. 

Originally from the UK, he trained in design before getting involved in the very early days of the internet 

As an avid traveller, he ended up in Australia, where he founded World Nomads, an online travel insurance service for people who loved travelling and exploring.

After a successful sale of World Nomads to NIB in 2015, Simon has focussed his time on the energy and renewables sector.
