2021 has been a fantastic year in the life of Social Broker, and we can't wait to see what the next 12-months holds. We certainly don't do it for the accolades, but we're delighted nonetheless to be the industry's most-awarded marketing agency. Here's a roundup of formal industry awards we've received this year:
2021 Startup of the Year
Australian Digital Technology Awards
The Australian Digital Technology Awards recognise
We were thrilled to be ranked 6th in amongst the industry's cream of the crop, and awarded us 2021 Startup of the Year (Mortgages).
2021 Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist
Women in Finance Awards
Our Co-founder Sarah Barnett has been recognised as a finalist in the Entrepreneur of the Year category of the Women in Finance Awards.
The finance industry - and entrepreneurism more broadly - has typically been male-dominated, but is gradually changing to be more reflective of the communities we serve.
Diverse experiences create diverse thinking, which can only be a good thing - and part of why here at Social Broker we've gone with a 50:50 gender split in our exec team.
A hearty congratulations to all the finalists, especially our clients across broking, advice, accounting and law.
