Moderator's Profile:Koen Vanderhoydonk, Founder & CEO, The Connector
I grow B2B FinTech companies when scaling is a must. I offer you growth-as-a-service using my large network as FinTech and RegTech influencer, my experience in scaling a FinTech, combined with a 25-year passion for the Financial Industry. As a start-up, you do not have to think twice about SaaS or the Cloud, it's logical. Why would not follow the same logic when scaling? Do you hire a sales team? A traditional sales team is not scalable in its own right, it's no longer the best solution in a global digital world. I’m a linking pin between multiple start-ups, banks and regulators and connect the dots between people and companies. Join this ecosystem approach and let's together collaborate towards an inclusive and ethical financial landscape. I love to connect with you. Please reach out!
