Hi FINTECHTALKERS, (follow me on Twitter (X)) for lively discussions on these topics @PADDYRAMANATHAN),
I sat down with Ram Palaniappan, CEO of Earnin, a company that allows workers to access their pay instantly. Lot of folks in the industry like to talk about financial inclusion as it is good for the brand, Palaniappan and Earnin are the real deal.
Palaniappan has built a very sucessfull main street fintech and raised around $200 million from prominent VCs like Andreessen Horowitz, Matrix Partners, Ribbit Capital. He talks passionately about how how his company’s product have impacted real customers. Seems like a simple concept but a huge deal for someone who lives paycheck to paycheck.
We cover a wide variety of topics including solving for medical debt, overdraft fees or its avoidnance, increasing savings and overall improving the financial health. Can Earnin be the financial AI co-pilot - the killer GenAI app in consumer finance? Tune in to find out.
Enjoy and always be in the know,
