The Card Network | Nick Sims, Co-Founder & Director

Founded in 2019 by fintech pioneers, Nick Sims and Richard Hewitt, The Card Network (TCN) has forged a reputation as Australia’s leading provider of creatively themed, multi-brand gift cards. Fearing that the “gift” had been lost in “gift card”, TCN has set out to revolutionise the gifting experience in Australia.

In conversation with Henslow, Nick Sims, co-founder and director of TCN, discusses the importance of workplace culture and how it is critical to the success of the business. He also shares with us some exciting new products and collaborations they have in the pipeline and what the future of gifting looks like in the Australian market.

Nick’s full interview for the Henslow Innovator Series Podcast is available on Spotify & Apple Podcasts.
