Hello and welcome to Equity, a startup business podcast, where we unpack the numbers and nuances behind the headlines.
All the cool kids are complete Equity’s auditor survey. We want to hear from you!
It’s our Wednesday show, where we focus on one person, reflect on their work, and unpack the rest. Mary Ann resume today’s interview with David Velezco-founder and CEO of Nubank, the $35 billion digital bank based in Sao-Paulo, Brazil, which offers credit cards, checking accounts and life insurance to consumers.
Equity listeners know that digital banking has been on our minds for some time now, so naturally we were thrilled to have David on the show. Here’s what we got ourselves into:
- How Nubank Achieved – and Maintained Profitability – in This Challenging Macroeconomic Environment
- How not only does the LatAm fintech market differ from that of the United States, but how the region’s founders run their businesses differently than their American counterparts
- The state of digital banking in general and how David sees the bank evolving in the next few years from the perspective of both a founder and a former investor (he previously led Sequoia Capital’s Latin American investments) .
Mary Ann and Alex are back on Friday with more fairness, but as always you can follow us on Twitter @EquityPod.
