Investing for impact as a woman in fintech [FinTech]

Emmalyn Shaw at Flourish Ventures provides us with a personal take on how women can make an impact in fintech investing.

I had more than 20 years of experience working with entrepreneurs in the technology industry, but it was the desire to have an impact, to invest in companies that were both mission-driven and commercial, that led me to fintech and to Flourish.
