Podcast: Start-Up Lessons for the Future of Fintech
Financial technology entrepreneurs are in good company. The fintech industry is exploding, and start-ups are emerging in markets across the country. If you’re one of these up-and-comers, you can learn a lot from those who’ve gone before you. Two such fintech innovators share their stories in this Powderkeg podcast, featuring CLA Principal Brandon Martin and Bundle founder and CEO Eric Mager.
“But at the very beginning of that journey, you got this. You want to be really secretive about whatever you’re doing. You think somebody’s going to steal your idea. It’s really just so unfounded. And the benefit of reaching out to people and talking to people early on far outweighs the risk of somebody stealing your idea.”Eric Mager, CEO, Bundle
Listen as Brandon and Eric detail their fintech journeys and why it’s important to network and interact with fellow start-up founders as you begin yours. If there’s one thing they want you to know, it’s that you don’t have to go it alone; there’s a world of support out there, and the opportunities are boundless. Seize them!
“We’ve got the money, we’ve got the talent, we’ve got the support infrastructure around here. And we’ve got people that really have a big desire.”Brandon Martin, Principal, CLA
CLA and Powderkeg have teamed up to connect the fastest-growing companies outside of Silicon Valley with resources to grow businesses that are healthy within their culture, in their communities, and on the balance sheet.
