Fintech Australia has today announced the finalists for the inaugural Finnies. Held next week in Sydney, the national fintech awards identify outstanding players who demonstrate long-term vision building and financing sustainable business growth.
Spotcap is pleased to have been recognised and to have reached this stage as a finalist; we are nominated in the broad award categories of growth mindset and global perspective, as well as excellence in business.
“We are honoured to be a part of such a prestigious set of awards, amongst so many high-achieving fintech leaders,” said Lachlan Heussler, Managing Director of Spotcap Australia and New Zealand.
Spotcap has been offering Australian small businesses unsecured, flexible and accessible business loans from $10k to $400k for almost two years. Our unique loan criteria allows us to focus on real time performance, not just a backwards-looking credit score. As a result, we have helped thousands of small businesses worldwide to achieve new heights, helping them manage their finances to achieve their business goals.
Upon starting Spotcap in Australia, the team has grown from a single person, to twenty people over the span of two short years. We have also managed to reach out to hundreds of SMEs, and partnered with key financial service companies to rapidly expand our business’s presence in Australia.
Spotcap has been recognised for growth mindset and global perspective, in our efforts in collaborating with the Heartland Bank in New Zealand and expanding Spotcap’s global footprint. The Heartland partnership took place when Spotcap entered the NZ market in late January 2017, to enable and educate local New Zealand SMEs on alternative finance. The collaboration with Heartland Bank was groundbreaking for Spotcap Australia, and was in tandem with our entry into an increasingly thriving, tech-driven NZ economy. Ultimately, this has enabled us to empower more local SMEs with tailored finance, allowing them to focus on what really matters – their business.
We would like to congratulate the other finalists in their respective categories, and likewise wish them the very best of luck. May the best fintech win!
Winners will be announced at the awards night on Wednesday, 24th May.
Until next time,
The Spotcap team.
