What are VC’s Looking for in FinTech Startups
Speakers: Jennifer Simpson, Tilman Ehrbeck
50+ Households account for over 80 percent of the investable assets in the US and more than 50 percent of the country’s purchasing power, but despite being a key segment of the US economy, aging households have been largely overlooked by FinTech innovators. Omidyar Network, a philanthropic investment firm, wants to help change that. In this session, Jennifer Simpson interviews Tilman Ehrbeck, the partner who leads financial inclusion investments globally, about why the firm believes FinTech for the 50+ cohort represents a compelling market opportunity with potential for significant social impact, and share insights from recent investments in this space.
