Finch, ‘a financial app for your social life’ has secured $2.25m in seed funding just three months after launch.

Earlier this year, the Melbourne-based fintech won Best Product Demo at the No. 1 fintech program in the US, Envestnet | Yodlee.

Finch, which is live on Android and iOS across Australia, combines social payments and spending insights to bring the most frequent financial activities of millennials in one place, while helping build financial awareness.

Finch allows users to:
• Pay and request money instantly and securely without BSBs
• Run tabs in groups to track shared expenses (think house mates or travel mates
• Split bills fairly, and
• Get actionable insights to improve spending and saving habits
The startup raised capital in just six weeks from a strategic investor and Australian VC in a round that was oversubscribed, and will look to raise a $10-$15M Series A next year.

Finch will be using the funds to complete product market fit, scale product development, grow its Melbourne-based team and accelerate customer acquisition.

Co-founder, Shahirah Gardner will be participating on various panels at this week's Collab+Collide Summit as part of Intersekt Fintech Festival, Nov 2-3.

Finch is available for free download on iOS and Android in Australia and is supported by Pin Payments and NAB.
