5-Minute FinTech

Executives at big banks. Entrepreneurs at startups. Consultants with a dozen clients.

As we speak to more and more people about FinTech, we realize that very few of us have taken the time to understand the underlying principles and historical context of the things that we are working to modernize and transform.

Understanding these things won't give you superpowers. But, it could help you avoid an unnecessary experiment, understand something about human behavior, or find a model from the past worthy of being tried again.

This is the value we hope to create with 5-Minute FinTech. These pieces are not meant to be comprehensive deep-dives; rather, they are meant to start from first principles and question our basic assumptions about a topic we thought we understood.
