In her piece on workplace diversity, Financial Times contributor Alicia Clegg talked to representatives of several global companies about what it takes to help a diverse team succeed. Nordigen was prominently featured as a startup that has managed to maintain its teams both diverse and goal-oriented by applying what we call the 'culture-fit test’.
Talking to Alicia, our co-founders revealed that upon establishing the company, they "made each other a promise: the company would be open and inclusive, a place where anyone could pitch in with an idea and know that their teammates would listen respectfully."
Here’s what we've been up to recently.
In recent years, tech giants like Apple, Google and Amazon have started planting flags in the financial sector, intruding on traditional financial institutions. Facebook is finally joining the race with Libra, its digital currency described as a “simple global currency and infrastructure that empower billions of people.”
As a society, we are gradually moving away from paper cash, increasingly gravitating towards alternative digital payment methods - contactless-cards, cryptocurrency, mobile and wearable technology. Regulatory driven initiatives like EU's PSD2 and UK's Open Banking are propelling financial innovation and enabling the emergence of new products and services.
