Celebrating funding month, Startup Grind Auckland has the privilege of virtually hosting Kendall Flutey from Banqer!
2019 Young New Zealander of the Year, Co-Founder and CEO of financial education platform Banqer
Kendall is the Co-Founder and CEO of Banqer, the financial education platform named 2018 NZ Hi-Tech Start-up Company of the Year, and a recipient of a Global Inclusion Award at the G20 Summit in Berlin in 2017.
In 2018 Kendall was recognised for her efforts in raising the financial capability of over 150,000 students being named the 2018 Young Māori Business Leader and in 2019 the Young New Zealander of the Year.
Kendall has a background in Accounting, Economics and Web Development, having walked the unconventional path of a true entrepreneur. Founding two start-ups prior to Banqer, Kendall’s passion has always lay in social issues, particularly educating youth to enable better outcomes for not only them, but their wider communities
During this fireside chat, we will explore Kendall’s journey from a career in accounting to where she is now, and where the team hope to take Banqer in the future.
Note: The event will be in person at The Grid AKL although Kendall will be joining virtually (Fireside and Q&A format will remain the same with networking before/after)
