This episode of Breaking Banks was sponsored by NTT DATA… They get stuff done. We were guests at the Money 2020 conference, and had the chance to do lots of amazing interviews.
The theme of the conference was Fintech Superheroes, and this show highlights just 4 of many Fintech fighters that are working to make the system better, smarter, faster, cheaper, and more honest.
First we meet Neobank hero- Norris Koppel, the founder of Monese, which was started out of his own need to as a migrant to open a bank account. Like many heroes, he decided to solve the problem for everyone after him!
Next, we meet Frederic Nze, whose Oakam is transforming microlending in London, strengthening communities and giving opportunity to the financially underserved.
Then we go to Marta Piekarska at the bright star of Hyperledger, working on blockchains that could solve problems of trust, transparency, and tranfers forever.
And last, but hardly least, is our own Fintech “Q”, Steve Kirsch. As CEO and Founder of Token, he is solving the problem of banks accuracy, agility, and speed.
In coming weeks, we will bring you more stories from the conference…
