Fintech Founders is an exciting round the world trip, covering more than twenty countries and all continents, containing 75 interviews with top founders of an incredible array of financial technologies firms, from unicorns (billion-dollar plus organizations) to those still getting a foothold in their markets.

Noted Fintech strategist, researcher and consultant Agustin Rubini selected top founders that had superb ideas. The result is an amazingly open and honest look at how each of them battled to create their successes, their trials and tribulations, how they got funding, what it took to succeed and perhaps most importantly, advice from those who have gone through the process and managed to stay on top.

This extraordinary book of interviews covers the pillars of entrepreneurship, including strategy, leadership, culture building, team building, funding, operations, marketing, focusing on the most interesting points of each entrepreneur. Read unique anecdotes, their strategies for success, their lessons learned and advice. An invaluable book for anybody interested in creating a financial technology company or progress their career in this industry.

Fintech Founders features interviews from a variety of companies spanning the financial services (technologies) space, including lending, investing, banking, SME solutions, insurance, regtech, and data analytics. In doing so, the scope of discussion, the strategies, and the advice given and the fascinating stories of personal risk, change management and investment, both personal and financial make this a most interesting and educational read. These entrepreneurs wanted to share their stories and truly wanted to help others to join the fintech revolution which will, in the end, benefit everyone.

Agustin Rubini set out to create a book that would inspire people to start more businesses in fintech, but it turned out to be far more interesting, informative and valuable as a guide for any entrepreneur and certainly a must read for anyone in the financial services industry.
