China’s rapid economic expansion has created a range of opportunities for Australian fintech startups. However, unlocking the opportunity has historically been challenging.

At this month’s Next Money meetup we’ll be joined by Jack Zhang, CEO of Airwallex and Leigh Flounders of Latipay to talk about how they forged partnerships in China.

On the night we’ll be discussing:

  • why entering the China market is such a big opportunity for Aussie fintech startups;
  • the challenges Aussie fintechs face when entering the Chinese market;
  • the strategies Airwallex and Latipay used to build their presence in China;
  • why Asia is still not considered the primary market for Aussiefintech companies; and how this will change; and
  • how your startup can become ‘China ready’.
