HIGHLIGHTING FINTECH LEADERS

OUR INTERVIEW WITH NEKTARIOS LIOLIOS

The World Economic Forum reports a “mental health crisis in entrepreneurship”. Entrepreneurs and leaders are waking up to the unique challenges faced by start-up founders. Four-time co-founder and sense maker Nektarios Liolios left to #buildabetterfuture.

Nektarios is a master-builder with a star-studded start-up resume. He founded three companies in six years and is a consummate pro and all-around stellar start-up guru. After ten years of watching entrepreneurs struggle he founded his fourth startup, The Future Farm, to offer a platform to help entrepreneurs when it is #timetotalk. No one should struggle alone.

Power-down that spreadsheet, silence your phone, kick back, and join us for our talk with Nektarios...

FINTECH VENTURE FUNDING

Openly closes $15M in Series A round to execute a multi-state expansion

As we close the books on Q2 (the quarter not banking platform) it’s no surprise that VCs were social distancing themselves from deals. As many funding rounds aren’t immediately public the early data is only a proxy, but at the moment we’re looking down 25% vs Q1 and off almost 100% YoY!
