Welcome back to Fintech Business Podcast. In this episode, I talk to Jesse Silverman, formerly an attorney at the Connecticut Department of Banking and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, before working in legal roles at fintechs like LendUp, Steady, Nuula, and his present role at payments platform Highline.
We had a chance to talk about:
Our time working together at failed startup LendUp, what we learned, and lessons other companies should take away from it
Why regulators always seem to be trailing behind innovation in financial services
Whether or not fintech is actually “expanding access and inclusion” or “democratizing” anything
The CFPB under Director Chopra
