HIGHLIGHTING FINTECH LEADERS

OUR INTERVIEW WITH JOHN STREET CAPITAL

J.K. Rowling, Mark Twain, and even Dr Seuss put pen to paper under a pseudonym. It’s far less common in the overly transparent, occasionally intrusive, personal brand-building, social-media era. Anyone using a pseudonym, we thought to ourselves, must truly be in it for the love of the game. Or rather, for the love of FinTech.

This week I caught up with the author behind a curtain of John Street Capital. The folks at JSC tweet FinTech goodness @JohnStCapital and move to Medium when the twitter threads get unwieldy. We love the mystique, but at the end of the day, regardless of who’s behind the handle, we’re happy to have them in the FinTech community.

YOUR BOSS ASKED YOU TO COME UP WITH A LIST OF THE CONFERENCES YOU SHOULD ATTEND? WE DID THAT FOR YOU!
