S1 E6 - Disrupting the disruptors

Carmen and Kieron share how a game-changing fundraising platform paved the way to their market-disrupting payments solution, as well as their views on the trick a lot of their peers are missing (with Kieron paying homage to his punk-rock youth). 

They also discuss the accelerating adoption of Open Banking in the UK, and how providers can speed up the process even more. You’ll hear lots of benefits of Open Banking, plus concrete examples of commercial implementations and the features and functions that make it an ideal solution for all kinds of organisations – including seamless WooCommerce payment gateway with Wonderful and an app for mobiles and tablets.  

If you’re operating outside of the fintech space, you’ll still get invaluable nuggets of wisdom as the CEO and Head of Ops talk about the hows and whys of brilliant UX and UI, including creating frictionless sign-up flows. 

On the ‘being well’ side of things, Carmen reveals that she’s been taking her first tentative – but no less speedy – steps into running, jumping straight into action with a 5k for her first foray. Kieron, the more seasoned pavement-pounder, also shares tips and insights as they both reap the mental and physical benefits of running for fun and the Swedish word “fartlek” sneaks into the conversation. 

In this, the final episode of Season One, the co-founders announce their first guest for Season Two, Theo Lau. Theo is a published author, American Banker Top 20 Most Influential Women in Fintech, highly respected industry expert and the force behind Unconventional Ventures and the One Vision podcast.
