Fintech start-up, RelayPay, is set to launch Australia’s first digital currency banking platform, enabling Australians greater access to the emerging global crypto market and open finance solutions built on the blockchain. Bridging the gap between traditional finance and digital currencies, RelayPay provides banking rails to its customers to buy, sell or use their crypto assets at global market rates. The company also built a digital currency payment processor which opens up a new market for Australian Retailers and access to untapped AU $400 billion global cryptocurrency market at a time when eCommerce has become vital for retailers’ survival.

Trade Ledger

Trade Ledger was founded in 2016 to help the financial services sector re-imagine business lending in the new digital economy. Their Lending-as-a-Service (LaaS) platform enables banks and alternative finance providers to automate their operations at scale. It uniquely takes new structured data sources from the supply chain and transforms them into actionable insights and tasks, enabling the right lending products to be created and offered at the right time, over the right channel, quickly, at low risk.

Based in Australia and the UK, they are currently expanding elsewhere within Europe and APAC to accommodate their fast-growing client base. Visit


OpenSparkz re-imagines the world of loyalty and offers by harnessing nascent card linking technology. Using payment scheme integration, OpenSparkz is a global enablement platform that can power any rewards or offers program without the need for separate loyalty cards, offer codes or coupons – creating better experiences for consumers and merchants. Consumers pay with their payment card and receive the rewards, in real time. Merchants can deploy offers within minutes without POS modification, data capture, data processing or staff training. Its cloud-based solution is globally deployable and is PCI-DSS compliant.

Radium Capital

At Radium Capital, financing R&D tax advances is their only focus. They’re experts in helping businesses reinvest their own money, sooner, because they’re passionate about helping businesses of all sizes grow.

The platform-based approach reduces the need for dilutionary capital. This lets business owners putting the sweat and tears into businesses with R&D hold onto more of the equity they’re working so hard to create.

Many businesses have pivoted and reinvented themselves over the past few months and Radium is pleased to be part of the solution that helps Australian innovation continue to thrive.
