864. Insights: Don't sleep on Australian fintech

On this episode of Fintech Insider Insights, host David Barton-Grimley is joined by some great guests to take a look at Australian fintech.

It’s been a wild couple of years for the whole global fintech industry, and Australia is no exception. We’ve seen a big slowdown in new startups, and a pretty severe drop in investment.

So, is the optimism still strong with those who are in this space? Well we knew just who to ask… 

Fintech Australia, the country's fintech advocacy group, exists to promote the interests of Australian fintechs across the country and the globe. Earlier this year they went through a leadership shake up, with previous chair and Australian fintech hero Simone Joyce announcing that she’ll be leaving her full time role there. 


This week's guests:

Simone Joyce, CEO/Founder of PayPa Plane & outgoing chair of Fintech Australia

Sarah Gorman, new Chair of Fintech Australia and Head of Growth & Marketing, at DAS (Digital Agriculture Services)
