Discussion focused on the challenges facing start-up businesses in Australia, the shifting expectations of investors and regulators, and the difficulty of determining the ideal timing for a start-up to progress becoming a publicly listed company and all the responsibilities that come with it.
The coveted guest speaker Lisa Schutz, is the founder and major shareholder of a pioneering fintech and regtech start up Verifier. She is the 2017 Woman in Finance Awards winner of the Fintech Leader of the Year, and has won multiple other awards in her distinguished business career.
Lisa challenged the audience to consider how prepared start-ups should be before they challenge the status quo of the market sector they are forging a future in.
Lisa noted that like almost all start-ups that become successful, success does not happen overnight, it takes years of hard work and commitment to a vision, while operating on a very lean budget. It means plenty of knock-backs. You must be resilient and surround yourself with an experienced and qualified team.
