Purpose and the Promise of Fintech

The co-founders of Unconventional Ventures write about the purpose of fintech; while fintech has made tremendous strides in the past decade today is a time to pause and reflect on the exact role that fintech plays; we should all do better in the financial services industry to drive innovation for the benefit of society at large; we can create a fairer system that can improve the financial well-being of everyone but the last decade has seen uneven gains; Bradley Leimer said, “While the Great Recession changed the banking industry and made it stronger, the past decade saw a very divided impact for its broader stakeholders in society: the individuals, families and small businesses that make up the people and communities that our industry serves.” Irish Tech News.
