What the Fintech? | S.2 Episode 19 | Can’t see the wood for the VCs
Ian Foley, partner at Level Ventures and resident cartoonist at FinTech Futures, joins us for this latest episode of our What the Fintech? podcast.
For our numbers-based news this week we talk about the investment by US Bank in a pair of venture capital firms, and also touch upon Standard Chartered setting aside $107 million for the setting up of a new challenger bank in Singapore.
For our main discussion section, Ian and Alex talk about the world of venture capital, and how it can often not be too dissimilar to the fintech industry. We touch on setting up a VC, how to get in the mind of a partner, and how the sector is tackling its own diversity problem.
Stay tuned to the end to find out what Ian wants to lock away in our buzzword Folsom, the Fintech Jail!
