Blink Finance in fine company as a Small Business Champion award finalist
Blink Finance, your local Gold Coast Finance Broker, is honoured to have recently been named a finalist in the Financial Services category of the prestigious Australian Small Business Champion Awards. These highly respected awards recognise the hard work and valuable contribution that small businesses make all around Australia.
Often viewed as the pinnacle of business success, being recognised among such a strong line up of other financial services finalists is a proud and humbling moment for the Blink Finance team.
The journey of a small business owner can be likened to that of a rollercoaster. So many highs and lows, but there is also a deep sense of fulfilment in knowing that together with thousands of other small businesses in this country, each one is working towards boosting the Australian economy and delivering a great experience for clients.
The Australian Small Business Champion Awards recognise the values associated with successful small businesses. These values include service, commitment, leadership, endurance, courage, innovation, performance, persuasion and generosity.
The road to being a national small business award finalist
The journey of Blink Finance has been a whirlwind adventure, which started from humble beginnings in December 2011 by two powerhouses David Hooper and George Despotovic. Having worked in the personal finance sector before making the leap into small business ownership, David and George both felt that there was a great opportunity within the market.
They knew that they could develop a business that provided a superior level of customer service, better interest rates and a customer experience that was second to none.
And as they say, the rest is history.
David and George left the comfort and security of their full-time jobs, launched Blink Finance and have continued their story with consistent growth and achievement over the last 7 years.

Why Blink Finance are already winners
Being an Australian Small Business Champion Awards finalist means more to the Blink Finance team, than just seeing our name up in lights, or on a certificate or trophy.

We aren’t focused purely on profit and making a quick buck. We want to be known for much more than that.
