You can listen to the Hnry story and CEO and co-founder James Fuller sharing their humble beginnings from an excel spreadsheet.
And there were a record number of downloads and votes for the People's Choice category this year. Hnry emerged victorious - less than 100 downloads separated the 8 finalists!
A record year deserved a special occasion and the team at FinTech Australia did not disappoint.
Held at the Forum in Melbourne, the industry turned out in ball gowns and black ties, WOW what a gorgeous bunch the Australian Fintech industry looks!
It was an extremely well-planned event.
This was the biggest Australian Fintech awards yet. The ceremony was super slick which left the whole night for the long-awaited in-person awards. 2019 was the last time the Australian Fintech industry gathered in person for the event.
The awards across all categories were tighter than ever, no company won more than one award. Perhaps most telling about this year's Finnies was the calibre of finalists who didn't win an award.
James says winning People’s Choice reflects the huge amount of work Hnry’s team on both sides of the Tasman has put into making the Australian expansion a success.
“Despite launching in Australia during the pandemic, we’ve quickly become the fastest-growing digital accountancy across both sides of the Tasman. Our growth reflects that the nature of work is changing – people want more flexibility and opportunities to earn independently.
“We’ve been able to offer Australia’s independent earners something new, and it’s obviously hitting the mark – for a New Zealand company to win People’s Choice in Australia is something special,” he says.
