HIGHLIGHTING FINTECH LEADERS

OUR INTERVIEW WITH KATHERINE SALISBURY

Americans are facing a savings crisis, reports CNBC. 41% of working adults set aside 5% of their annual income or less for emergencies or financial goals. Fintech to the rescue!

The mobile-first banking app Qapital is in a league of its own. Split between Stockholm and NYC, the company landed a somewhat recent $30M Series B to grow the company. The company is making big waves with new offerings, such as a Qapital Visa debit card and investing with Qapital.

This week, we’d like to introduce you to Katherine Salisbury, Co-founder, and Chief Strategy Officer. Previously a legal force of nature, Katherine divides her time between her elite sports management agency, soccer fandom, her family, and personal finance stardom.

Grab your chips and chair and join us for our interview with Katherine…

FINTECH VENTURE FUNDING

Possible Finance raises $11M over Zoom; makes remote working permanent

Is there no FinTech gospel? Many of our Empire faithful are perplexed that the ecosystem continues to cite different venture round statistics each week. The data across CB Insights, Crunchbase, Pitchbook, and Empire simply differ.
