We are delighted to announce that Fractal has been selected to join the prestigious UK-Australia Fintech Bridge initiative.
Fractal CEO and Co-founder, Nicholas Heller states: “Australia's small-to-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are crucial both for wealth creation and for the people they employ. Productivity growth is essential for promoting long-term economic growth and higher living standards. It is therefore vital that SMEs are given the best chance of succeeding.
Fractal is solving a global problem - the SME funding gap. Australia is the top priority market for our expansion strategy.
The UK-Australia Fintech Bridge gives us direct support from the UK government who can help position us strongly within such a stimulating market that is financially progressive, digitally enabled, and on route to launching Open Banking of which Fractal has been at the forefront in Europe
Nicholas Heller commented: "We're excited to begin our journey in Australia this year, and start shaking up the financial services ecosystem that has deeply underserved small businesses for decades"
