With plans for rapid global expansion, 6clicks raised the A$5 million from a consortium of Australian business leaders including Luke Sayers, Founder and Executive Chairman at Sayers and the former CEO of PwC. This funding now brings the total investment in 6clicks to A$7.7 Million since launching mid-2019. This new funding will be directed at global expansion, product development and customer success. Steve Nola, the former CEO of billion-dollar I.T. services giant NTT Limited Australia has been appointed to the 6clicks board of directors.

Following recent expansions into the U.K. and the U.S. and with partnerships secured with leading advisory firms globally, 6clicks is trusted by a range of private, government, listed and global customers.
