Joel joined Fundsquire in March 2020 as a Relationship Manager in Australia. Joel has previous experience in working for high growth tech and fintech startups in Melbourne and London. Passionate about the startup landscape both at home and abroad, Joel is committed to working closely with our clients and partners, ensuring that Fundsquire provides a positive impact on the whole scale-up ecosystem. 

Prior to joining Fundsquire, Joel spent three and a half years in London working for fintech mortgage lender LendInvest.

Over the duration of his employment with LendInvest, the company grew to one of the largest non-bank lenders in the UK.

Outside of work, Joel is passionate about all things sport and can often be found on one of the local golf courses. Having traveled extensively throughout Europe, Joel is often thinking about the next big adventure. In 2018, Joel combined these two hobbies by following the Socceroos at the 2018 Football World Cup in Russia.
