    The business opportunity

    Rarely does a person have the opportunity to join a disruptive company that will change the way people view the financial services industry. Banking is old school, a chore, it’s expensive and something most of us don’t like doing. It’s time someone changed that and shifted the power from the incumbents to the consumer. After all it's your money, why should you constantly have to pay fees and then pay more fees just for good measure. It should be a value exchange that fits seamlessly into customers lives, imagine banking was as simple as sending a text message.
