“I’M CONFIDENT WE’LL GET THERE”: CHECKBOX’S CEO ON HIS REGTECH STARTUP’S ATLASSIAN-SIZED PLANS
Despite having only launched in January, last year, Checkbox has already amassed a small fortune of accolades. Notably, the Sydney-based regtech startup was named Regtech of the Year at the Australian FinTech Awards and Best SaaS Startup at StartCon in Sydney.
In addition, CEO Evan Wong took out the Westpac Innovation Challenge and StartCon Pitch Competition, earning himself a trip to San Francisco, where Checkbox will represent Australia at the forthcoming Startup World Cup.
Most recently, Wong snared Third Place and People’s Choice Award at the GMIC Sydney Pitchub Competition, subsequent to which he was approached by one of the judges – the founder of a VC fund – to discuss investment opportunities.
Wong is quick to point out, however, that Checkbox “isn’t just all show”. Since it officially went live in October, his startup has onboarded more than 30 local and international enterprise customers to its platform, which facilitates the digital transformation of regulation. In addition to insurance companies, consultancies and not-for-profits, the startup’s client base boasts Lexis Nexis as well as some of Australia’s Big 4 accounting firms, Big 6 law firms and Big 4 banks.
