Company Description

Whether you’re working from home or on your way to the office, chances are you’re probably reading this because you’re seeking a new adventure, or you’re up for a new challenge. GROW Inc might just be that for you!

So, who is GROW Inc?
Founded in 2016, we’re the Australian FinTech success story you probably haven’t heard about. We’re solving big problems in the Superannuation and Managed Funds industry. The administration platforms (the software that tracks everything to do with your super) are built on things you or your parents would recognise from the glory days of 90’s computing

How are we doing it?
We’re solving this by disrupting the wealth management industry with DLTA, our platform built on Distributed Ledger Technology which improves the financial wellbeing of Australians. We’re making Super more timely and information more accessible whilst enabling wealth management companies to offer more cost effective solutions.

We’re rebels with a cause. We’re authentic, diverse, and embrace our differences as we continue to put a dent in the universe. We know diversity of thought helps us to build better solutions for our customers which is why we encourage the entire GROW team to bring their whole selves to work each and every day
