During the week I share the latest marketplace lending and fintech news on Twitter as it happens. Then every Saturday I take the most interesting news items and blog posts from the past week and share them here.
The World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies 2018 from Fast Company – Congrats to CommonBond who join an esteemed list of companies including Apple, Netflix, Square and Amazon as one of the 50 most innovative companies on the planet.
FinTech in Focus from Milken Institute – I always enjoy the Milken Institute fintech newsletters put out by Jackson Mueller. Even some bonus Olympics coverage in there this week.
Eastern Bank readies reboot of successful tech lab from American Banker – This 200 year old bank is also one of the most modern in its approach to innovation and fintech. Just goes to show age is not necessarily an indicator of willingness to change and adapt.
