The program based in Brisbane will see successful applicants’ partner with Suncorp for a three-month program which aims to bring innovative ideas into the market.

Chief information officer at Suncorp Sarah Harland said the program was an opportunity to combine ideas, technology and resources to fuel the next wave of digital customer services.

“An innovative new wave of fintechs will be able to test and validate their ideas, learn from industry experts in banking and insurance and leverage Suncorp’s vast data capability to hone their business models, with the aim of ultimately deploying new solutions to provide value to Suncorp’s nine million customers across Australia and New Zealand,” said Ms Harland.

The program is now open for applications with two startups to be accepted in the first intake starting in June.

The 90-day program will provide start-ups with access to mentors, designers, data/APIs and experts across a range of sectors.

“We are proud to be supporting the local fintech sector and encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship in Queensland,” said Ms Harland.
