Victoria’s innovation and expertise in financial technology will be on show to the world at Intersekt, Australia’s first fintech festival.
Technology is rapidly changing the way the finance industry operates and Intersekt is the place to be to hear from experts on the latest trends and developments that are shaping the future of the industry.
Intersekt will bring leaders in fields like blockchain, cryptocurrency, artificial intelligence, payments, open data and digital identity together with regulators and government for seven days of learning and networking.
Melbourne is growing fast as a fsintech and financial services destination and is now ranked 13th in the Global Financial Centres Index.
With a culture of innovation, a vibrant startup community and a highly skilled workforce, Melbourne is perfectly placed to grow, especially given the significance of its established finance industry which features two of Australia’s global banks and six of Australia’s top pension funds.
The Victorian Government is supporting this growth, announcing it will establish a Fintech hub to boost local startups, attract investment and create new jobs.
Victoria already supports startups through LaunchVic, which is a champion for the sector and is delivering $60 million to help startups and entrepreneurs to turn their bright ideas into successful businesses.
