FinTech Is Hard! What It Takes to Make It - Angela Galardi Ceresnie, CEO at Climb Credit
In an industry that is still relatively new, standing out in the ever-growing crowd of FinTechs and making a true difference is a challenging feat. Although it seems that only a few unicorns are able to ‘disrupt’ the centuries-old financial services industry, the sector is only growing more interested in leveraging technology, and opportunities for new companies are endless. But that doesn’t mean it’s straightforward - even with a perfect business model, and the best technology, it’s almost impossible to follow a roadmap for success.

So what does it really take to make it in the FinTech industry? To help us answer this billion-dollar question and share her own success stories, we have invited the CEO of Climb Credit, Angela Galardi Ceresnie to the next episode of FinTech is Hard!

Ceresnie has led Climb Credit since 2018, an innovative student payment platform that makes career creation and transformation more accessible, affordable, and accountable. Working at the intersection of the education, finance, and payments/lending industries, Ceresnie has shaped the operations, culture, and future of the company since joining as COO in 2016. She previously co-founded and exited Orchard Platform to Kabbage, and has been steeped in data-driven credit her whole career.
