Better Fintech launches for financial equality
A former Green Dot employee has unveiled his new Arizona-based start-up Better Fintech to target the financial literacy and equality market.
The firm is the creation of Michael Panzarella, who has worked in various roles at Green Dot. These include chief design officer, chief product officer, SVP for product, and VP for product.
Panzarella says: “My company will be focusing on helping fintech companies, with preference to those that promote tools and services that foster financial literacy and equality.”
These are very early days as a website and blog are coming soon.
There are no more specific details to share – such as launch date or funding. However, Panzarella has plenty of experience in the industry, specifically UX, product design, web, mobile and digital channel development.
It seems Green Dot is a breeding ground for other wannabe entrepreneurs.
Earlier this month, US mobile banking challenger Chime raised $70 million in Series C financing, led by Menlo Ventures.
Chime’s co-founder and CEO Chris Britt also worked at Green Dot.
