Fintech is all the rage. But to be successful requires a special sauce, some special people, and a great deal of determination. The vast majority of Fintech startups fail; how can we ensure that our startup does not burn out? Finleap, founded in 2014, is a tremendous success story in European Fintech. Many of the businesses that have been developed at Finleap HQ in Berlin have become some of the most prominent and successful in the European ecosystem; Solarisbank, Clark.de, Elinvar, Pairfinance, Penta, FinanceAds have raised multiple millions in financing and are going strong. Others have been tried and shut down. Hear from Ramin Niroumand, the CEO and founder of Finleap on his journey to build the most successful fintech conglomerate in Europe.
