Prospa is NSW state winner in 2017 Telstra Business Awards
Prospa has been awarded the 2017 Telstra New South Wales Medium Business Award in the 2017 Telstra Business Awards. Prospa is the first fintech company to be awarded the accolade and this year’s win follows the company’s third consecutive appearance as a finalist: in 2015 in the Startup category, and in 2016 and 2017 in the Medium Business category.
Over the past five years, Prospa has disrupted a previously traditional industry by transforming the way small business owners experience finance, injecting more than $400m into the Australian small business economy through over 12,000 loans to small business owners. Alongside this growth, Prospa has maintained extremely high customer satisfaction of over 90%, as well as forming strategic partnerships with Westpac, Reckon and IAG, enabling easier access to finance for small businesses across the country.
In its 25th year, the Telstra Business Awards are nationally recognised for showcasing the most inspiring small and medium businesses in Australia, rewarding the innovation and passion of Australia’s business owners.
Beau Bertoli, joint CEO of Prospa, comments: “We’re honoured to be the first fintech company recognised as NSW’s top medium-sized business. We believe this win highlights Australia’s changing attitudes towards startups and confidence it has in the fintech industry.”
“We owe this achievement to the continued success of the small businesses we support, and the unmatched commitment of each and every one of our team members to execute our ambitious business goals.”
Greg Moshal, joint CEO of Prospa, adds: “Prospa is one of Australia’s fastest growing technology companies, and we’re proud to have been commended for our work. This week Prospa celebrates its fifth birthday and we are proof you can build a big, high quality, successful business in just 5 years. We look forward to continuing to solve problems for small business owners and supporting the growth of the 2 million small businesses across Australia.”
