MANDURAH has the potential to become WA’s Silicon Valley, according to local business Fair Go Finance.

The loan provider is doing its bit to fulfil that potential after unveiling its new Mandurah tech hub on July 23, where a team of technical experts will be based to drive innovation in financial software development.

Fair Go Finance founder and managing director Paul Walshe said Mandurah was fast becoming a centre for technical expertise.

“I believe there is huge potential to bring more tech innovation to the region and support the development of skills,” he said.

“By being in the same office with the operations team it will give the tech team a real sense of what matters to customers and enable them to develop solutions that have the customer’s needs top of mind.

“This will benefit Mandurah locals by providing career opportunities through pathways not normally associated with Mandurah.

“By creating meaningful employment locally, it will help people achieve work life balance, removing approximately 3 hours of travel time per day for some people.”
