Fintech for creators is the next big startup category. 5-time Canadian national chess champion and Twitch star Alexandra Botez reveals how she was repeatedly rejected by traditional banks who don't understand influencers. That's why Karat just raised $26M from investors including SignalFire to give creators banking tools like a credit card based on their follower count and engagement. "BotezLive" shares her origin story, and talks with Karat founders Eric Wei and Will Kim about why creators deserve fintech just like other small businesses. Learn how money flows in the creator economy, which startups still need to be built in the space, and how influencers are finally getting to invest in the tools they use.
