As a financial technology services company, Sharesight as a business is passionate about helping students get started on their pathway to successful careers in the financial and financial technology spaces.

Our business walks the line between investing, technology and personal finance, combining elements of each in order to help retail investors lead easier, wealthier lives. We are also a young and forward-thinking company who is active in encouraging participation in the burgeoning Australian fintech sector.

As a result, we are seeking to financially assist students who have an interest in working within the finance sector as a career, whether it be banking, stockbroking, financial consultation, accounting, tax, or any variation of the above.

We believe gaining a solid education and knowledge of business fundamentals is crucial not only in helping students lead successful professional lives, but also in adopting an investing mindset from a young age that will help them grow their wealth over the long term.
