“There is a paradigm shift in financial services occurring, driven by technology, with new business models emerging”  

Unlocking potential: The FinTech opportunity for Sydney KPMG report Oct 2014

Expanding on the financial technology opportunity for Sydney, the Ideaction Modular Innovation Program Launch is part of the Vivid Ideas program at Vivid Sydney, the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas. Hosted by Tyro Fintech Hub the evening will launch a pilot innovation program to foster and implement relevant ideas in Fintech.

“A key to building the Sydney Fintech ecosystem is providing opportunities for start-ups to interact with each other, with regulators, mentors and advisors, financial services businesses, both big and small, so we all can share knowledge and enable the best ideas to win. Balancing collaboration and competition is critical for the sector to thrive and this event is a good step towards achieving that.” Jost Stollmann, Executive Director of Tyro Payments.

The launch event will explore tools to empower Sydney’s Fintech community to turn innovation into action. Participants will be guided through interactive discussions around the phases of the Modular Innovation Program pilot, creating a best practice framework for identifying innovation needs, generating solutions, and implementing ideas.
