The future of bank-fintech collaboration

Will Beeson talks to Duena Blomstrom and Liz Lumley about the future of collaboration between startups and incumbents.

For the latest episode of Rebank, we’re joined by two of the “queens of fintech”, Duena Blomstrom and Liz Lumley, for an insightful conversation about bank-fintech collaboration, plus an exclusive announcement from Duena.

Duena headed sales for Meniga, a successful Icelandic fintech startup, from 2010-2015. She has been investing in and advising fintech startups since then, especially on commercial and go-to-market strategies.

Liz ran StartupBootcamp Fintech’s 2015 London programme and then led ecosystem development for the accelerator. She is currently managing director for thought leadership at Rainmaking, one of the parent companies of StartupBootcamp.
