Every Company Will Be a Lightning Company

By Graham Krizek

“No One Loves Their Bank” is the motivation behind Angela Strange’s 2020 presentation, “Every Company Will Be A Fintech Company”. The premise is that any industry, regardless of the barriers to entry, will eventually succumb to innovation with such high levels of customer dissatisfaction.
