I interviewed live on site during Boston fintech week, in this episode I talk with Ron Shevlin, Christina Qi from Domeyard, Jennifer Lum from Forge.AIand Mario Hernandez from Impesa.

Ron has the pulse of banking and fintech partnerships and he feels that bank/fintech partnerships are not the answer to question about fintech. Instead he feels fintech assimilation is. He feels based on research that people don’t want financial health, they want financial performance.

Christina is a brilliant entrepreneur and is currently on the Forbes 30 under 30 list. We talk about the lack of speed in AI and the importance of Quant engineering.

Jennifer is on her 5th startup and it’s called Forge.AI, The use case of AI that she finds super valuable is the ability to turn unstructured data into structured information and she’s betting on that use and trend.

Mario is a banking leader turned fintech entrepreneur. He discussed how becoming a black belt in Karate influenced his company culture which is skewed younger and how he’s going from suit to red sneakers.

Tune in and Listen.
