20 October 2021

4 October 2021, Sydney Australia – GetCapital, a provider of credit and payment platforms to Australian businesses, today announced that it has joined the Tech Council of Australia.

With a strong focus on tech-driven innovation and digitisation, Jamie Osborn, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GetCapital commented that the company welcomed the chance to be part of the peak body representing Australia’s tech sector.

“Over the past seven years we’ve experienced the opportunities and challenges that come with being a fast-growing, tech-driven company,” said Jamie.

“We’re currently on a significant growth trajectory and will have expanded our technology team by over 50 per cent by the end of the year. With that in mind, we’re keen to work as part of a council of industry leaders and challengers to find ways to overcome the hurdles of talent attraction and retention, which – while not new problems – have been exacerbated by the pandemic.”

Since its inception, GetCapital’s technology teams have developed proprietary platforms that address core pain points for Australian business.

Enabled by streaming data, these platforms offer a better way for Australian businesses to trade, pay and access funds. According to Eldar Averdi, Chief Technology Officer of GetCapital, the company’s technology and data teams continue to grow, enabling further enhancement of GetCapital’s digital credit and payment solutions.  

“Our current recruitment focus is on scaling up our engineering, product and UX teams as we further build out our customer and broker platforms and evolve our back-end tech stack,” said Eldar.

Jamie also commented that the company looked forward to working as part of the council on matters ranging from regulation to research and development incentives.

“The Australian tech sector is full of potential and we’re pleased to be working with some of its best and brightest to realise that potential,” said Jamie. For more information on the Tech Council of Australia please visit
