🎧 Podcast: New Finance
A conversation with Mike Kelly about payment networks and investing where crypto and traditional institutions collide
Hi folks, Paddy here from Odin. We are making it 10x cheaper and easier to launch & invest in syndicates and venture funds. We are now live in private beta. If you’d like to get involved, share some more information with us. If we think you’re a fit, we’ll get you onboarded soon.
Today a conversation with Mike Kelly, founding partner at New Finance VC.
Not a Spotify user? Go here.
Mike is a software engineer with deep founder and operator experience at some very well known fintechs. This is exactly the sort of VC I believe the European ecosystem needs more of. Also, their website is dope.
Mike is building an exciting firm investing in platforms facilitating a more efficient, fairer financial ecosystem and reshaping our world for the better.
Sometimes this means Web3, sometimes it is companies building within the legacy ecosystem. As you’ll see in our conversation, the point where Web3 and “old finance” collide is, in Mike’s opinion, where the magic will happen in the next 20 years.
No long written summary this week - please give the conversation a listen and let me know your views!
Very excited to see where New Finance VC goes. They are currently closing their first fund and doing some occasional deal by deal investing.
Here are some threads and tweets I enjoyed this week:
That’s all for today. We’ll have another podcast in two weeks’ time.
We’ll also be doing more regular written content on weekdays, once I’ve settled on the best format.
Meanwhile, we are ramping up onboarding to the Odin community and letting more people use the platform to launch and invest in syndicates. If you haven’t already, don’t forget to add your details below to get access to the Beta! You can also immediately jump the queue by subscribing.
