We’re proud to announce our latest partnership with ANZ to help accelerate the growth of the FinTech community. The partnership will allow FinTech startups within YBF to access key decision makers at ANZ as part of the bank’s ongoing commitment to digital transformation and innovation. We’re incredibly excited about the opportunities that this will bring to the ecosystem, and to the partnerships that will be forged between startups and ANZ!

From our announcement in The Australian:

York Butter Factory, founded by Adventure Capital in 2011, will partner with the bank to help support and develop financial services start-ups in Australia.

The hub’s founder Stuart Richardson, managing partner of Adventure Capital, said the partnership would allow York Butter Factory to further develop the size and number of fintech opportunities in the Australian market.

“We want to build an environment in Australia that supports innovation, technology and entrepreneurial thinking — and success of incubators like ours will help keep Australia globally competitive as a destination for tech start-ups,” Mr Richardson said.

ANZ’s chief technology officer Patrick Maes said the partnership was formed with the view that banks need to build strong relationships with all parties in their ecosystem.

“Our industry is facing many challenges as a result of disruptive technologies and the emerging demands from customers for new and innovative ways to bank,” Mr Maes said.

“We need to adapt quickly and address the changing needs of our customers — we can’t discount any solution and need to view all digital innovations as potential opportunities.
