WHO WE ARE
FounderEducated in Finance and raised in the 21st century, I am passionate about both technology and inclusive finance. Many entrepreneurs in developping countries are hindered to execute great ideas due to a lack of credit history, or because the costs of a loan are too high. Combining new technologies with traditional finance can solve this by lowering risk and costs. However, two different disciplines do not always speak the same language, which prevents integration of FinTech in traditional finance. This insight encouraged me to found Infintech Consultancy and provide the missing link.
