Carolina started her business with all her savings and a credit card

While in between jobs, Carolina thought it “was the perfect opportunity to give [her own business] a good go.”
 

Seven years later, she has nine fashion stores across Sydney – “six stores are kiosk format, two stores like the one in Neutral Bay and we also have our online store”. Carolina chose Westpac as her bank because when she was shopping for a bank, she came across Mario at our Leichardt branch, and “he was really interested in what I wanted to do.”

My local accountant sets up all the payments, so I can easily control that.  We have opportunities for when I’m not there that somebody else can approve payments, so online banking has been critical for us.”

Ryan shares General Assembly’s Australian growth story

Ryan explained “General Assembly started as an education company in New York City in 2011. Shortly afterwards, we opened our doors in Australia. We help individuals solve the existential crisis of the modern economy. In Australia alone since our inception we’ve helped about 400 people land jobs as web developers, another 600 as user experience designers.”
 

“In Sydney, Westpac has been essential to the growth of General Assembly. As of last year we were at a much smaller campus down the street which we really had outgrown about 2 years prior. We were bursting at the seams, we had an office located at one place, we had a campus in another place and it was really a disjointed footprint. When we decided that we wanted to grow in Sydney, we spoke with Westpac and we were able to secure a bank guarantee that allowed us to take on the building that we’re in today.”
