🎧Building the Best, with Jillian Williams feat. Peter of Synctera

Hello fintech friends,

We're back with the third installment of Building The Best, our podcast hosted by the fantastic Jillian Williams of Cowboy Ventures, where we dive deep into the fundamentals of creating and scaling transformative fintech products by interviewing the founders themselves.

In this episode, Jillian is joined by Peter Hazlehurst, the Co-Founder and CEO of Synctera, a Banking as a Service platform for quickly building and launching fully compliant bank accounts, debit cards, charge cards, lending, and more. Peter was previously the Head of Uber Money at Uber, COO at Postmates, and a Director and Board Member at Google Payments.

"Very quickly, we realized the cost of onboarding a really early stage fintech was kind of the same as the cost of onboarding a well established one. So then the question was, how do you get confidence to go upstream? And how do how does the fintech develop confidence? How does the customer feel that you've evolved into it? [...] And what was quickly transforming was that the customers themselves were going from seed and pre-seed to funded A's and B's. And then by the end of the year, B's and C's. Then over the weekend, we just did our first series D funded startup."

Hi, everybody. This week we have Peter Hazlehurst on with us. So we're really excited to talk to him about his journey and the founding of some Terra. So Peter, thank you so much. And so to start off, I'd really love as I was looking at your LinkedIn, and seems like you've been around FinTech for a while. But usually Google Payments over money, but then I think it was also really interesting experiences outside of it. And you had maybe you're CEO of a wine tasting company, and then also posted its Nokia. So I think the wine tasting gummy definitely sounds interesting. So I love to just hear more about your background. And and what spurred your love for fintech?
