Pinstripe Media launches new Fintech Focus segment on AusBiz network in partnership with FinTech Australia

FinTech Australia has partnered with Pinstripe Media to launch a new segment for the StartUp Daily Show focused on the fintech industry.

Hosted by StartUp Daily editor Simon Thomsen and Pinstripe Media reporter and co-host Sam Brown, the segment, FinTech Focus, will host interviews and panel discussion delving into the key issues and news stories in the sector.
It will run once a week as part of the StartUp Daily Show, aired between 2pm and 3pm each weekday on AusBiz.

As an initial partner of the segment, FinTech Australia will provide background and leverage its pool of over 300 members as talent for the program.

“We’ve long covered fintech issues and companies on the StartUp Daily show, but have always wanted to take a deeper dive into the sector,” General Manager of Pinstripe Media AJ Koch said.

“This show is our opportunity to give the sector the coverage it deserves, given it is shaping the lives of so many consumers and businesses. We want to delve into the issues that matter, and host thought-provoking conversations on its future.”

FinTech Australia CEO Rebecca Schot-Guppy added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Pinstripe on this new direction for The StartUp Daily Show. It builds on our earlier work to create more avenues for coverage and discussion within the sector for our members.”

“There are plenty of issues and topics that despite the extensive coverage of fintech still fly under the radar in the sector, simply because there isn’t the platform to discuss them. This program will hopefully fill this gap and create some thought provoking coverage that generates broader interest in the sector.”

FinTech Australia will serve as the ongoing partner for the segment, with the aim of bringing on more corporate partners as its reach grows.

The segment is a first in a new format for StartUp Daily show, where it aims to launch more speciality verticals focusing on particular areas of the startup ecosystem.

FinTech Focus will commence mid-April, running weekly until the end of 2021.
