WEBINAR: How to scale in a way customers love – Banking vs Fintech-as-a-Service.

Your payments infrastructure could be costing you more than you realise. Using multiple providers costs time, costs cash and, more importantly, costs customers. Which is why we’re talking to clients who have moved away from traditional banking and moved towards Fintech-as-a-Platform. We’ll also be joined by Mat Megens, Founder & Chief Executive Officer from HyperJar for a fireside chat on their ‘journey’ to success, powered by Modulr.

The event will cover:
o BaaS vs FaaS: What’s the difference and what do you need to build financial products customers love?
o The key challenges faced by companies that offer payment or bank-like services
o How to avoid business inefficiencies by using a joined-up Fintech-as-a-Service partner (such as… well, Modulr)
