Fintech Podcasts

AI, VR and the future of the banking experience

In a new episode of Rebank, Will Beeson interviews Dhiraj Mukherjee of Virgin Money, who talks about data, digital innovation and the birth of Shazam.

Today, we’re joined by entrepreneur and innovator Dhiraj Mukherjee. Dhiraj is head of innovation at Virgin Money, a prominent UK bank and part of Richard Branson’s Virgin Group. After graduating from Dartmouth College and then Stanford GSB, Dhiraj co-founded Shazam, one of the best known apps of all time. Launched in 2002, the platform is alive and well today.

Dhiraj is a seasoned digital innovation and experience design professional, launching digital platforms around music, movies, advertising and social networking. He has advised on innovation for Reuters and other large corporates, and now carries the innovation flag at Virgin Money.

In addition to his work at Virgin Money, Dhiraj is an insightful thinker in his own right, and it’s in this capacity that he’s sitting down with us for this show.
