About this episode

In this episode, Martin meets with Panagiotis Kriaris.  Based in Vienna he leads Business Development at Unzer - a German FinTech and  payment services provider. If you are into Fintech, you may also know  Panagiotis from LinkedIn. Where he is a prolific poster of thought leadership  content. He has more than 60K avid LinkedIn followers. Quite impressive. In  our chat we openly discuss a wide range of topics from Banking-as-a-service,  FinTech commoditisation, super apps, challenger banks, BNPL, and the crypto winter.

As Panagiotis outlines in the intro, a central thread to our conversation is  the impact that the current economic crisis is having on fintech in terms of  pivoting mindsets from growth at all costs to profitability. We debate to  what extent this is likely to revert once we exit the current recession.
