Parpera was Founded in April 2020, raising AUD2.7m in equity funding through Equitise - October 2021 saw the launch of the Parpera App, which grew to serve hundreds of Australian businesses.

Dexter chats to Daniel about the relaunch of Parpera, finding new BaaS partners and facing closure of the business. This is an inspiring story of a founder who truly believes in their mission and is willing to push through what feels like insurmountable challenges to keep their dream alive.
