“We probably could easily go on to Prospa or Moula or any of the other fintechs … No platform asks about our values, our impact, our future plans. They just want to see the accounts. And that didn’t sit well with us. We’re thrilled to be thriving under the support of Red Hat Impact. The accountability factor is a great motivator. What’s better is knowing that we are paying back people who believe in us and what we’re doing”.One of our fantastic founders
