Digital agency AFK wins $300,000 government jobs funding

Digital agency AFK has received $300,000 in funding from the New South Wales Government to help grow its software development team and innovation lab.

John Barilaro, deputy premier and minister for small business, said in a statement the loan would help the agency hire local developers to continue to work on major projects.

Sugrue said the funding will help the agency to continue to grow

“AFK is a world-class digital agency that has worked on major projects including redesigning and developing the Commonwealth Bank’s intranet for their 56,000 staff which won multiple global innovation awards.

“Jobs for NSW is providing a $300,000 Accelerating Growth Loan to help AFK to grow and scale, bring more highly skilled jobs to our state, invest in the latest technology and maintain its position at the digital industry forefront,” Barilaro said.

James Sugrue, the owner and founder at AFK, said the government money will assist the agency in growing its team and invest in new technologies.

“It will give us the support we need to grow in the Australian and New Zealand markets, to hire more staff as we look to meet aggressive revenue targets over the next 18-months.

“In the world of high risk creativity we think ahead to help brands be future fit. We explore how brands can use innovation and technology to make experiences better for people now and in the future.”
