THE AFINIATION NETWORK – SUPPORTING SMART AUSSIE FINTECHS AS WE GROW

The Afiniation Showcases are a high energy, rapid fire festival of innovation. A powerpoint free zone, only live demos of real tech are allowed. Each presenter has just seven minutes on stage, one big screen and an audience of eager innovation aficionados to impress.

The upcoming April 14 Afiniation Innovation Showcase in Melbourne is set to be a great event with a range of quality speakers – including Ignition Wealth – confirmed to take part. Industries will include our own digital financial advice (or ‘robo-advice’), blockchain technology, payments and alternative lending. Dr Pradeep Philip, CEO of LaunchVic, the Victorian Government’s new independent innovation agency, will deliver the keynote address at the start of the day. Ignition Wealth’s demo at this event will be the launch of our new technology solution ‘Teams’, a product designed to support professional financial businesses as they adopt digital financial advice. (For further information about this product see our press release here.)

Ignition Wealth previously took part in the inaugural Afiniation Innovation Showcase in Sydney in September 2015 where CTO Mike Giles demonstrated the then brand new direct to consumer Ignition Wealth digital financial advice app. Ignition Wealth was delighted to receive the award Best Robo Advice at this event.

With canny timing, Afiniation came into existence as the Australasian fintech industry exploded. Founded in April 2015 Afiniation’s declared aim was to give fintech a voice in Australasia. They bring support to fintech companies and provide a hub where innovation, investment and industry can meet and meld. In just 12 months Afiniation has grown to a membership of over 200 innovators, attracted significant sponsors including Australian Super and Yodlee.

The Afiniation newsletter, packed with news and happenings from the Australian fintech community is an essential read, giving insight and intelligent commentary along with the latest facts. Afiniation quickly gained the attention of the government with the NSW Innovation Minister Mr Victor Dominello both officially launching Afiniation in July 2015 and delivering the keynote address at the first Afination Innovation Showcase in Sydney in September 2015.
