Our next guest on the Fintech One-on-One podcast is Jason Wilk, the CEO and Co-Founder of Dave (Jason was last on the show back in 2019). Dave was the first neobank to offer real overdraft protection and have started a movement there that is being felt by banks large and small. But there is much more to be done.
