🎧The Fintech OG Series Debut: Matt Harris and Steve McLaughlin

After four months of recording episodes for the Fintech OG series, it's here!

I am so excited for you guys to tune in. We are kicking it off with Matt Harris of Bain Capital Ventures and Steve McLaughlin of FT Partners, which, if you're in Fintech, I don't even think these guys need an introduction.

We dive into everything from how they got into Fintech, why they've stayed in the space, and if they still think Fintech is a good place to join. You'll also find out how a golden retriever named Audrey has shaped Fintech investing as we know it.

Huge thanks to our sponsors as well. In case you didn't know, FS Vector's advisory team has helped hundreds of companies launch financial products by advising on product structure, finding and establishing a relationship with a partner bank, and even standing up necessary compliance programs.

In doing so, the team felt that compliance and risk management training really didn't need to be a thing that employees detested, but something that they enjoyed doing. So that's why they recently went and built out their own training curriculum in a platform called Headmaster. Now, Headmaster is filled with relevant, accurate, and role specific content, specifically tailored to each Fintech's unique needs. It also provides timely regulatory updates and frequent tips. on uplifting areas of compliance and risk management. So if you're looking to launch a new product and in need of compliance support, or you're just looking for a training platform, go to fsvector.com/headmaster to learn more.

Also, have you bought your tickets to the Empire Fintech Conference yet? If not, I have great news! As a sponsor, they're offering listeners a special discount if you use code "FintechOG" at checkout. Don't miss out! It's a day jam packed with masterclasses, live demos, inspiring keynotes, riveting live podcasts, and unparalleled networking opportunities. Join over 700 attendees, myself included, on Wednesday, April 10th, and immerse yourself at the forefront of Fintech innovation.

Time for the show!
