Risky business: How can we lower risks to scale innovative fintech companies?
One of the key challenges for impact investors is figuring out the level of risk involved in early-stage companies. But what if that risk could be somewhat removed to pave the way for more money to flow in innovative solutions? In this session investors and startups of Catalyst Fund will discuss ways to de-risk investments in fintech startups in emerging markets by working with a group of like-minded investors, funders, entrepreneurs and fintech specialists.
