The partnership will see the companies embedded within the Australian fintech ecosystem and networking with players, as well as supporting FinTech Australia events and initiatives.
FinTech Australia’s other corporate partners include Bank of Queensland, NAB, EY and BDO.
Rebecca Schot-Guppy, general manager of FinTech Australia said the fintech landscape is “built on the back of partnerships”.
“Not only does our corporate partner program help FinTech Australia run a robust support program for the sector, but it builds strong relationships between fintechs and major companies that can lead to partnerships and other business endeavours,” Ms Schot-Guppy said.
“We thank both AWS and Visa for their support of the fintech community and look forward to working with them on integrating them further into the local and global fintech ecosystem.”
Anthony Jones, head of partnerships and innovation for Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific said his organisation looks forward to bringing its global insight and experience to “bear for the interest of Australian fintechs and the payments ecosystem”.
“Visa is proud to support fintechs as they continue to redefine the payments experience to meet changing business and consumer demands,” Mr Jones said.
David Engel, fintech business development manager (ANZ) at Amazon Web Services (AWS) added his company is “proud to collaborate with FinTech Australia to support its efforts to connect and unite the Australian fintech ecosystem, who is a driving force in the innovation and evolution of the Australian financial services sector.”
