In this episode I chat with Phill Rosen, co-founder & CEO at Even Financial. Phill was previously a co-founder at Orchard Platform, which was acquired by Kabbage in April 2017. We discussed raising money for new ventures, company culture, increasing employee interaction and how banking customers won’t use a banking app like BOFA’s (as an example) to find the financial service products that they want. Instead he feels that financial services products are a transactional thing that people engage with in order to get the things that they want to when and where they want to get it. That ecosystem is the transactional transportation money hub and Even Financial is helping banks plug into that ecosystem to continue to play a role in consumer transactions. We laughed a bit and he shared some funny stories about encouraging colleagues to interact more often. Listen in, I know you’ll like it.
Tune in and Listen.
