Time: 9:00am – 10:00am

The demand for strong technical talent within the Fintech market has never been so competitive.

To add to this, if attracting the right candidate isn’t hard enough, retaining them can prove to be even harder!

Join us as we discuss, debate and suggest the best, most successful methods of competing for and retaining the strongest tech talent currently out there.

Time:
12:00pm – 1:00pm

This session will give an overview of the Australian and international market trends in fundraising – then discuss the opportunities this offers fintech businesses.

Insights we will offer in this presentation come from both our extensive deal experience in Australia, and our international connectedness.

These deals include Series A and Series B raises (including flips to the US and growth equity fund transactions), tech listings on ASX, buy-side and sell-side Tech M&A and corporate venture capital transactions.

We can provide best-practice insight from the US and elsewhere to help our fintech contacts and clients grasp opportunities to grow.
