Startupbootcamp has partnered with Global Victoria to create Virtual Trade Mission

Startupbootcamp has partnered with Global Victoria to create a Virtual Trade Mission, seeking to facilitate and prepare Victorian startups and scaleups for the upcoming UK Fintech Week conference.

The program will allow entrepreneurs to gain the most value from attending the UK Fintech Week while attending remotely. Centered around the potential value of the UK for Victorian startups and scaleups, the masterclasses will be on ‘Building up Relationships in a Virtual World’, ‘Corporate Startup Collaboration’, ‘Remote Digital Marketing Tracking’, and ‘Why Do Business in the UK’ amongst others.

In addition, Growth Hacking support will be provided by Startupbootcamp to build up qualified leads that the participating startups and scaleups can utilise during the virtual conference. Utilising the skills learned from the masterclasses, this mission will facilitate participants’ exploration of opportunities and challenges.

This Virtual Trade Mission will provide startups and scaleups with the tools to facilitate participants’ exploration of opportunities and challenges during a pivotal time of change in the UK and EU in the context of Brexit.

Interested Victorian startups and scaleups who wish to apply or find out more can visit Global Victoria.

Industry Updates: Delegation to the UK and big policy wins!

It’s already mid-February and there is a lot of positive noise about fintech in the community, parliament and the papers. The first of what we hope will be policy inroads for the fintech community passed this week being the Treasury Laws Amendment (2018 Measures No 2) Bill 2019. The bill allows for the regulatory sandbox to be expanded and for an increased testing period to help fintechs create a minimum viable product to take to market.  Thank you to everyone that has been involved in getting this important piece of legislation passed.

We have so much on the horizon to look forward to – from the Senate Inquiry hearings to two roundtables with Treasury, Regulators and members, and two new submissions. (more…)
