The UK Department for International Trade (DIT) will select up to 12 UK fintech companies to participate in a trade mission to Australia from 20 - 23 March 2017.

They will also have the opportunity to extend their trip with an additional day in either Sydney or Melbourne or across the Tasman in Auckland or Wellington, New Zealand.
Director General UK Department for International Trade, Australia & New Zealand, Nick McInnes said:
We are very pleased to have the opportunity to bring a group of UK fintech companies to Australia for the first time and introduce them to the local market.
While fintech in Australia is still in relatively early stages, the industry is growing rapidly and there are many opportunities for UK companies to set up, collaborate and succeed.
The fintech market in Australia is forecast to grow to over AU $4 billion by 2020, of which AU $1 billion will be completely new added value to the Australian economy, so now is an ideal time for UK companies to enter the market.
The successful companies will visit Sydney’s fintech hubs - including Stone and Chalk - and will have the opportunity to network with startups and key individuals from the local fintech ecosystem at meetups and in co-working spaces in both cities.
There will be sessions with specialist fintech lawyers and accountants and the opportunity to meet with the Australian regulators.
