How to partner with a fintech startup (interview with Nektarios Liolios)

Will Beeson talks to Nektarios Liolios of Startupbootcamp FinTech and Startupbootcamp InsurTech about collaboration between startups and incumbents.

For today’s episode of the Rebank podcast, we’re thrilled to be joined by Nektarios Liolios, CEO and co-founder of Startupbootcamp FinTech and Startupbootcamp InsurTech, the leading innovation programmes in the financial and insurance industries.

The programmes provide funding, mentorship and office space in the heart of London, Singapore and New York, along with access to a global network of investors and VCs, for up to 10 selected fintech startups per class.

Nektarios has spent nearly 20 years in fintech, previously with Clearstream and Swift, where he ran the Innotribe Startup Challenge.

Today’s conversation was a fascinating discussion about a number of approaches to partnership between incumbents and startups. Regardless of the strategy used, there are a few key elements that enable successful collaboration.

You can listen to more episodes of Rebank, and other fintech shows, on the BankNXT podcast page. Enjoy!
