The 8th Annual Australian FinTech Awards took place on Thursday, 25 August 2023 in the Ashurst Ballroom in Sydney.
Ashurst has been the Event Partner for these awards since their inception in 2016.
Since that time we have witnessed the Australian fintech sector mature, grow and develop into one of the fastest fintech sectors in the world at an unprecedented speed.
With the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating digital adoption and more confidence around the ever-increasing opportunities in this sector, entrepreneurs continue to innovate and investors continue to support their ground-breaking businesses.
The keynote speaker at the Awards was Co-Founder of Constantinople, Macgregor Duncan. His key message to the fintechs was to think "big" and with a "global" vision.
This event recognised and celebrated the achievements and successes of industry-leading individuals and companies in Australia across 17-award categories.
The major award of the evening sponsored by Ashurst, the FinTech Start-Up of the Year, was awarded to Alex Bank.
