FinTech Australia creates local funder list

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google

FinTech Australia has put together a new list naming local investors in the sector, including venture capitalists, angel funds, crowd funders and incubators.

The resource, which is free to use, breaks down the type of funding each group provides, for example specifying that a venture capital firm only invests in Series A rounds.

“We’ve taken this work off time-poor early-stage founders and created a valuable resource for the industry,” FinTech Australia Chair Simone Joyce said.

The number of fintech funders in Australia has grown substantially in the past few years, Ms Joyce says, and the new list will be curated and kept up-to-date to ensure it remains valuable for the sector.

“There are now more options for funding than ever before, and it's set to continue growing,” she said. “We’ve made it easy to register your fund to ensure that you are part of this resource.”

FinTech Australia, which also previously launched a regulatory map, says investors can sign up to be added to the funder map here.
