Airwallex uses advanced technology to enable low-cost, high-speed and transparent international payments encompassing the entire cross-border payment value chain, from local collection to foreign exchange and international payment. In carrying out its mission to re-imagining international payments worthy of the increasingly globalised and digitalised economy, Airwallex aspires to build a global digital payment network, digitising international payments and connecting various participants in every corner of the globe through a single platform.

Founded in December 2015 by five co-founders with extensive expertise in the payment space – Airwallex has secured over $200M USD in external funding, supported by top-tier investors including Tencent, Sequoia and MasterCard. Led by a highly capable, experienced, and driven executive team, Airwallex has established international offices across Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, London and San Francisco to further deliver its global services and expanded its offerings to cover payments into over 130 countries, supporting over 50 currencies.

Antler is a global startup generator. We bring exceptional individuals together from across the globe to pursue purpose and bring about change in the world. Through a six month program, we’re unlocking the power of the world’s most brilliant and determined people to work on some of the most exciting and crucial opportunities and problems of tomorrow. We help the entrepreneurs find the right co-founder and connect them to a top tier network of advisors and experts worldwide. Antler provides funding from day one to support founders building businesses they will own and run, and that can positively impact local, regional and global economies.

Antler launched in Australia in March, 2019 and subsequently kicked off its inaugural program in Sydney in June with more than 70 exceptional individuals hungry to launch their own startup. These people included CTOs of major tech companies, serial entrepreneurs who already have achieved successful exits from businesses they have built, a unicorn builder and even a rocket scientist. Those 70 individuals formed 31 teams, of which in July Antler invested in 13. As part of this pre-seed investment teams secured $100,000 cash. November marks the end of the first program, and teams are well on their way with first hires onboard, first customers on their platform, MVPs built, and, in some cases, revenue achieved.

Growth Hackers is Sydney's premier growth hacking community. We are a free community. We are not a business.

We will learn everything from SEO, conversion optimisation, data-driven development/optimisation, Inbound marketing, social media, data-driven marketing campaigns, google analytics, content marketing, email marketing and plenty more.
