Oliver*, a leading alternative finance blog, interviewed the Chairman and Co-founder of Grow VC Group Jouko Ahvenainen. In the interview Mr. Ahvenainen commented the future outlook of fintech, crowdfunding and data services. They also discussed, how the new US President Trump might have impact on the finance and fintech market.
Some highlights of the interview:
"I would say that FinTech forces are making the world more global. Moreover, as we pointed out in our report, FinTech is creating more complex networks which are more difficult to control by governments."
"Nowadays, traditional finance companies are losing their power while new services are emerging. The difficult question to answer is how long it will take."
"Startup equity crowdfunding alone is not so great business."
"Consumers will eventually ask for more tools to take back control of their data as it is unfair that others own your own data but you. Blockchain is starting to help people in this respect."
