Speaker Bio

Greg Ellis is the co-founder of Nimble, a disruptive fintech startup that is creating a whole new category in the Australian lending space, using data and technology to provide smart little loans.

Together with his good friend Sean Teahan, Greg saw something wrong with the way people borrowed money so set out to change it, growing Nimble into one of the world’s top fintech innovators.

Having self-funded Nimble in its early stages (from hard-earned savings and a hell of a lot of lawn mowing) Greg constantly strives for pixel-level perfection and unmatched customer experience. Today he executes marketing, brand and product strategy and is passionate about preserving Nimble’s unique internal culture, which is a cornerstone for its rapid growth.

Greg has been an entrepreneur for 15 years, co-founding a successful online health recruitment business in Ireland. Before his entrepreneurial days, Greg completed degrees in International Business and Economics and spent three years competing in ironman triathlons.
