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.

But nom nom nom – FinTech continues to eat the world, says Alex Lazarow at Forbes. With over 30 funding rounds reported this week, we believe Alex.

We begin with the California-based eCommerce solution Scalefast and a $22M Series B raise to turbocharge the direct-to-consumer space.
