FinTech Collective Co-Founder and Partner Gareth Jones was recently a guest on the Bank On It podcast, hosted by John Siracusa. Gareth discusses his career, what he looks for in a founder, and the firm's investment approach.
In this episode I chat with Gareth Jones, partner at Fintech Collective. Fintech Collective is a NYC based VC firm that exists to create the future of financial services worldwide by investing in the fintech founders of today. Prior to founding Fintech Collective, Gareth was a successful entrepreneur and business leader, who helped build and sell three category-leading fintech companies. These included Multex, which IPO’d and then successfully sold to Reuters; Serverside, which successfully sold to Gemalto, a European digital security company; and CardLab, which was successfully acquired by Blackhawk Networks, a global leader in prepaid gift, reward and incentive technologies and solutions.
