HIGHLIGHTING FINTECH LEADERS

OUR INTERVIEW WITH IÑIGO RUMAYOR

By 2022, 65% of Americans are predicted to be using digital banking. Powering the digital banking bonanza are FinTech firms dedicated to building the alphabet soup of tools and technologies.

NYC-based Arcus sprang forth from the famed Silicon Valley seed accelerator Y Combinator in 2013 to build the financial platforms of tomorrow. The company is “bankifying” the user experience – an enigmatic way of saying the company provides payments as a service (PaaS) infrastructure to power FinTech and the banks of tomorrow.

Co-Founder and all-things-revenue Iñigo Rumayor knows a thing or two about striking the right balance of pursuit and passion. He has assembled an all-star troupe driven to make banking as a service (BaaS) and the digital revolution available to everyone.

Unplug from your news feed and join us for this rousing interview with our dear friend Iñigo…

FINTECH VENTURE FUNDING

Arcus Announces Funding from Citi Ventures

It’s to be expected that the past two weeks were light on deals, as much of the world was anxiously refreshing a news provider of choice. Many in FinTech are undoubtedly utilizing this relative calm to pen the “What Biden Means for Fintech” blog posts. Here at Empire, we are instead asking: “What should the federal government's role be in FinTech?" Our brain trust has agreed on these seven primary questions:

  • Can regulation be used to spur competition? (Think open banking.)
  • How can regulators engage the innovation community? (The last Small Business Administration FinTech Conference was five years ago.)
  • Should fiscal policy be used to promote investing in startups? (E.g. tax incentives and credits.)
  • What can be done to see real-time payments in the Biden-era?
