The President himself is on board with getting America in the saving spirit!
We welcomed the No. 1 Obama impersonator, Reggie Brown, down under to give him a taste of what we’re doing in Australia – and he loved it!
Tesla rides, a welcome speech from the President, live music, American candy stands and a night of high-profile networking awaited those who attended our launch party at the Soda Factory in Surry Hills. Check out #finderparty on twitter and Facebook to stay in touch with the action!
That’s not all – keep reading for more videos, photos and fun stuff from the launch party!

Sydney going nuts over the POTUS’ visit down under:
We couldn’t stop talking about Obama down under
finder.com launched in spectacular American style.
We had a banana split station, popcorn-making machine, red, white and blue cocktails, lots of sweet treats (Reese’s Pieces!) and the most patriotic cake you’ve ever seen. All-in-all, the guests were treated to a rockin’ time (thanks in large part to the live band) at the classicly-styled Soda Factory in Sydney’s Surry Hills district.
Watch the video for the address from the Commander-in-Chief (Reggie Brown) and for a taste of the festivities. It’s not everyday that a little Aussie company makes it all the way to the US, so we went all out with our launch party. We started with a bang and we can only go up from here.
The President announces his finder.com Australian trip.
Travelling to Sydney for the finder.com launch heralded a number of ‘firsts’ for the President – the first time an Australian comparison site has expanded to the US, a first for the team at one of Australia’s biggest comparison sites, and even the first time Reggie Brown had been to Australia. Exciting times all-round.
Here, we see the POTUS give an official address to announce his journey to Australia to celebrate the launch of our American comparison services.
