Earlier last month, I was giving a keynote down in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Campus Party. The topic I covered was a new way of looking at financial technology for me, and explored the inadequacies of current banking and financial institions. I dove into some of the reasons why over 50% of the worlds population are unbanked (having no bank account), and how technology is quickly leaving these people behind. That market struggles, as technology is not geared towards them, but it’s one that is ripe for complete disruption.

Many of the reasons why I care about this industry are from some personal hardships early in my professional life, which I go through in the talk.

The video clip is available below:

Also, the core slides from my talk are here:
