Paul Ryan

Hi Disruptive Startups, 

Join us on May 25th when we speak to Paul Ryan, Co-Founder of Wizard Home Loans and Beau Bertoli and Greg Moshal, the founders of Prospa

We will discuss the current state of the fintech industry in Australia and how new innovation in this space is changing the financial sector.  

Guest Speakers:

Paul Ryan - Co-Founder Wizard Home Loans & Eccho Me

Wizard Home Loans was a non-bank lender that started in a 45 sqm office in 1996 and became one of the most recognised disruptors to the major banks in Australia. 

As the Director of Sales and Distribution, Paul was the architect and leader of the Wizard Branch Network which grew from zero in 1999 to 230 small business owners operating throughout. In 2005 Wizard was sold to Global giant GE Money for $500 million.

With 27 years of experience in the finance industry, Paul is well-equipped to provide valuable insights into what can make or break a business. 

He recently launched a new fintech venture called Eccho Me, which is a community Q&A platform where consumers can ask any questions in relation to finance and obtain timely, specific and helpful answers provided by qualified industry experts.

Eccho Me's vision is to transform the way consumers seek information and how they can identify who the best industry experts are to assist them.
