Fintech Insider USA: Alex Sion, Citi Ventures (S1E6)

Welcome to the last episode Fintech Insider USA, brought to you by 11:FS! This is Fintech Insider USA where our host Sam Maule is joined by the movers and shakers in the US fintech industry. In today's episode, Sam is joined by Alex Sion at Citi Ventures!

Welcome back to the 6th and final episode of this new show, Fintech Insider USA! In this episode, Sam Maul meets Alex Sion, Co-Head of D10X at Citi Ventures!

To start the episode, Alex explains what D10X actually is, and what the name stands for. The programme has been active for about 4 years and the consumer side is organised around two macro themes: modern life and economic vitality. Alex argues that the nuclear family has not existed for many years now and banks have been built around the image of the traditional family. How do you support families that perhaps do not fit into the image of the nuclear family?

We continue talking about how you innovate at a company as large as City. Where do you focus? How do you generate relevant ideas on a global scale? With such a global reach, how do you accommodate many very different markets?

All this and so much more on today's show.
