    A ticket towards prosperity or a bottomless pit of debt

    A ticket towards prosperity or a bottomless pit of debt

    Is college education a ticket towards prosperity and job security — or a bottomless pit of student loan debt? If you live in the U.S., that is a $1.7 trillion dollar question.  
    Student loan debt impacts all financial aspects of a consumer; and the burden is amplified for first generation college students and people of color, who don’t typically have access to generational wealth. With wage disparities induced by systemic bias, such gaps continue to grow even after employment. 
    In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley chat with Tobin Van Ostern, founder of Savi, a public benefit corporation focused on tackling the student loan challenge faced by America's 46 million student loan borrowers. While policy reforms are long overdue, we believe that private sector innovation can still play a crucial role to provide much needed immediate relief.

    The purpose of principles

    The purpose of principles

    In an industry where the business model is largely detached from consumers’ financial well-being, what is our purpose and what are our principles? Can we govern ourselves to make good decisions? Can we truly prevent the abuse of power and maintain transparency? Can our industry act as a true global fiduciary, or must there always be a conflict of interest?
    As we look forward to the next decade and the next 100 years, how can we become better ancestors to the next generation and the generations after that? In this new episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley chat with Tony Fish on data, money, and purpose.

    The unequal pie

    The unequal pie

    Talent is equally distributed. Opportunities are not. According to the latest Money Tree Report, startups in the top three states in the U.S. (California, Massachusetts, and New York) raised 74% of funding in 2020. This begs the question, how will entrepreneurs in other states get the necessary funding and support when the pie is not equal? How does the imbalance in turn impact local businesses and economies? And will the momentum behind remote work prompt necessary changes to turn the tide?
    In this episode of One Vision, Theo and Bradley chat with Wayne Miller, Executive Director of the Venture Center, on their efforts to drive corporate innovation and startup ecosystem development in Little Rock, Arkansas.

    The curious mind of a fintech influencer

    What makes someone influential? It’s not just about having an informed voice on a particular subject, or eye-popping social media metrics. It’s more about how you engage and create conversations, and how you develop and engage in a community that really matters most. Don’t miss this week’s episode of One Vision, where Theo and Bradley chat with global fintech influencer, Spiros Margaris, on lived experiences, his secrets to success, and banking trends for 2021. Having met Spiros in person quite a few times, we promise - he is as real as it gets and is a truly authentic voice in the wild wild west of FinTech.
