Hi, I'm Alan Tsen

Thanks for visiting my little corner of the interwebs.

By day, I'm Director of Revenue Strategy at Chipper Cash. On nights and weekends, I spend my time investing in early-stage fintech startups. I also write a newsletter on the fintech industry called Fintech Radar.

I was the founding GM at Stone & Chalk Melbourne and prior to that, I was the CEO of Fintech Victoria.

I was also formerly a board member of Fintech Australia where I was the chairperson for three years. I was a member of the Federal Government’s Fintech Advisory Group and a member of ASIC’s Digital Finance Advisory Committee.

In a former life, I was a tax lawyer and founder of an edtech company.
