Startup Stories – Sarah Wallis (Skript)

September 7 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am AEST


Hear the experiences of an entrepreneur and business owner – the highs, the lows, the wins, the mistakes, the inside story.

Sarah Wallis is a payment industry expert with 20 years of experience implementing payment solutions for a wide variety of organisations. With a background in the heavily regulated industries of banking and insurance, she has first-hand knowledge of the IT regulation requirements for large enterprises.

Sarah is co-founder of Skript, a company that is making waves in the new world of Open Banking to radically transform banking services. Skript provides the technological infrastructure and data capabilities to help innovative companies create the next generation financial solutions through the power of Open Banking, taking banking services to the customers instead of the customers to the bank.

Join us for Startup Stories to learn how Sarah transferred her consulting, financial, leadership and computer science expertise into solving the problems of Open Banking.
