Pitch Night: FinTech

Are you a FinTech startup founder?

We’re looking for local founders of financial tech startups to pitch at our Pitch Night: FinTech this June!

FinTech, or financial technology, covers innovative new tech projects that compete with or build on traditional finance tech. This rapidly-evolving industry covers everything from everyday banking, to borrowing and investing, right through to cryptocurrency. Victorian startups are growing fast in this space, with FinTech unicorns like AirWallex, Afterpay, MYOB and Judo Capital all headquartered right here in Melbourne.

4 finalists will be selected from the pool of applicants to pitch on the night to a room of industry professionals, fellow founders and an expert panel of judges. The winner will be the proud recipient of The Startup Vic Prize Package, full of business goodies for you and your startup!
