Progress to date

Austrade delivers a comprehensive range of export services for fast-growing technology scaleups (“born globals”) focused on client needs like building the capability to scale into new markets and growing commercial networks abroad.

Services include customised 1:1 support to high-growth tech exporters, digital resources and webinars, and group programs like bootcamps delivered through Austrade’s Landing Pads. Exporters are engaged via direct outreach, digital promotion and key industry partners such as Fintech Australia, with whom Austrade has signed an MOU to co-deliver services. These services have been augmented by the Australian Government’s $9.6 million initiative over 4 years to boost fintech trade and investment flows.
