‘Crisis To Catalyst’ Fintech Film by BBC StoryWorks and Innovate Finance
Oct 28, 2020
We were recently involved in the BBC StoryWorks documentary ‘Crisis to Catalyst’, in collaboration with Innovate Finance.
Released earlier today, the 30 minute film explores the evolution of fintech and digital transformation in the wake of the 2008 crash and more recently, COVID-19, featuring interviews with leading voices from across the fintech industry, including Augmentum Fintech CEO Tim Levene.
