HIGHLIGHTING FINTECH LEADERS

OUR INTERVIEW WITH SAM MAULE

“The banking industry is in a digital arms race” quips a 2018 article from Deloitte on digital banking. The future is here, and banks worldwide are scrambling to keep up.

Big, bright, and bold digital banking for the rest of the world. This is the claim of 11:FS, a London-based bank scaffolding and support ecosystem. Our good friends at 11:FS have finally launched in the US with Sam Maule, Managing Partner, podcast creator, and content curator. Sam doesn’t mince words and cuts right to the chase – a military mind par excellence. Sam and his band of FinTech brothers and sisters are out to change the world. Take the FinTech hill, Sam.

Hold the raucous applause for this one until after you watch their latest feature film. Welcome to the Empire, Sam Maule…

FINTECH VENTURE FUNDING

Rolling up the latest in startup health insurance offerings, Sana Benefits raises $20.8M

This just in from Empire’s brain trust: “Our research shows that mortgage and real estate FinTech is trending in 2020, up 4.3% in terms of total companies funded in 2019 – and that’s only in Q3.” Expect a further meteoric rise in funding as COVID and ultra-low interest rates drive people from urban centers.
