Tinkoff and Modulbank are two very innovative fintechs from Russia, both of which have been making profits for a long time. They now want to repeat their success in Western Europe, with Finom and Vivid Money, two new neo-banks that have come from the two role models.
Olga Shikhantsova takes care of all fintech investments for the Berlin VC Target Global. This includes start-ups such as the new B2B project of the module bank founders, Finom, the Israeli payment service provider Rapyd or the Insurtech Wefox. As an investment manager, she analyzes the European fintech market, but she also knows the Russian teams well.
That’s why Shikhantsova also knows what European start-ups can learn from companies in Moscow. In the podcast we also talked about the potential of private customer fintechs like N26 and Revolut in business banking. We conducted the podcast in English.
