Over the coming weeks, I will have the pleasure of sitting down with many of Australia’s leading FinTech CEOs. Each will be discussing the specific vertical of Financial Services they are looking at and share their insights.
Over the past few months, I’ve found myself doing an increasing amount of interview coaching for candidates. Each one of these are individuals who I really rate, but for some reason they’ve been falling short at the final furlong in processes. Through this coaching, I’ve found myself giving the same advice so I thought it would be useful to put a number of the techniques people have found useful into a series of blogs.
At the start of 2017, one of my (many) resolutions was to get out and attend more networking/speaker events within my areas of interest - digital marketing, growth hacking, customer experience and UI/UX design. I had the best intentions in the world of following this through, however we have all been there - it comes to 6pm on Thursday night, you’re stuffed after a long week/day, feeling all of your thirty something years. The last thing you feel like doing is making small talk and forcing your brain to work one more time - it’s too easy to just go home, make dinner and chuck on a few Judge Judy repeats (don’t judge me - she is awesome).
2016 has been a massive year for FinTech. We've seen millions of dollars investment and a lot of PR to match it. However, much of this has focused on consumer-oriented products and how they are going to "disrupt the banks". But what about the significant opportunity for software businesses that either will be partnering with - or directly supporting - the banks through innovative new software?

Prior to joining MitchelLake, my recruitment days were effectively over. Disillusioned, bored and frustrated with an industry blighted with negative experiences and low-quality transactional relationships, I was on the market and looking for more. That’s when I was introduced to MitchelLake and told they were different. “Here we go again” I thought, expecting another ‘Digital’ recruitment business to tell me how they were different.
Since 2013, muru-D has achieved a lot. With 44 companies in the portfolio, a base in three cities (Sydney, Brisbane, Singapore) and having $4m capital raised by companies and more than that generated, it’s hard to imagine the local startup ecosystem without it.
Following the announcement that MitchelLake is working with some of Australia's brightest young talent to facilitate a Tour of Duty to Silicon Valley, we're pleased to announce that we're hosting and informal drinks session in Sydney with US Immigration Lawyer, Elizabeth Jamae.
