Bundaberg-born fintech founder is leading the latest Aussie unicorn, but says he’s still a “farmer at heart” – SmartCompany

The startup joins Canva and Atlassian in the hall of fame of Australian-founded unicorns, and also follows a $675 million Series-B raise from Aussie-founded Zoox, which values the self-driving car startup at $4.3 billion. UK-based Greensill provides working capital to companies, providing an alternative source of funding and allowing them to pay suppliers more quickly, without compromising their own capital position. In the first six months of 2018, the company supplied $US3 billion million in working capital to businesses in Australia, up from $US800 million throughout the whole of 2017.
