By Jacqui Schofield - Smooth Retirement
It was great to be in the room with 400+ people from fintech start-ups around the country.
Smooth Retirement was a finalist in two categories, shortlisted with some very impressive businesses.
While it was really too early for us to be a contender, to make the finals and be part of such an event is an achievement we are very proud of.
We see that making the shortlist in two categories – Financial Advice Innovator of the Year and Fintech Start-up of the Year – was an endorsement from the judges that they like what we are doing.
It was also good to bring together our Sydney-based Advisory Panel members, Julie, Regis and Marcus – three really impressive professionals that we are fortunate to have on board.
Congratulation to Perth’s own Ruth Hatherley from Moneycatcha took home Fintech Entrepreneur of the Year and Fintech Business Excellence Award (Individual).
We met Ruth and committed to catch up with her back in Perth, one start-up to another.
