Brief Summary of Episode #307

In the story of “David Vs Goliath” the two are enemies.

But what if David and Goliath had worked together towards a common goal? What would have happened then?

In this week's episode, we are joined by Ashwin Kumar, head of startups, Banking-as-a-Service, at Stripe, to dive into collaboration, teamwork, and turning obstacles into advantages.

“I think that's really surprising how many non-payments, non-FinTech, non-bank experienced folks are getting into it. Because they're solving a problem in another space and they realize that this is the way to solve that problem here.” 

Ashwin is absolutely correct. Fintechs shouldn’t be fighting banking institutions, they should be teaming up to provide enormous benefits not only to collaboration within our field but taking that collaboration directly to our customers.

How do we not only build for you? But with you?

If you're looking for a fresh take on Fintech vs. Banks this one might surprise you.
