#335: Kevin Bennett of Caribou
The auto finance market is such a unique space. In some ways it has a lot in common with home finance, it is an asset-backed loan after all, but it also seems to be a far less mature market when it comes to fintech disruption. That is starting to change, thankfully, because there are likely tens of millions of people who are overpaying for their auto loans today.
My next guest on the Fintech One-on-One podcast is Kevin Bennett, the CEO of Caribou (formerly called MotoRefi). Caribou is tackling two problems at the same time. One around awareness of the very concept of auto refinancing and two, saving people money on their car payments as well as other car expenses.

#334: Bob Cortright of DriveWealth
Embedded finance is one of those fintech terms that gets thrown around a lot. But the reason this trend has real traction is because there are huge benefits for the end-user when finance operates in this embedded fashion. One of the very earliest proponents of embedded finance was DriveWealth, having started in 2012.
Our next guest on the Fintech One-on-One Podcast is Bob Cortright. He is the CEO and founder of DriveWealth, the platform for embedding brokerage infrastructure. Their most common use case today is helping any company enable fractional stock market trading in U.S. equities but the platform has potential far beyond that.

#333: Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins of Promise
If you receive a parking ticket or are late on a utility bill your options as a consumer are pretty limited. You need to go to the website and pay or send a check in the mail by the due date. If you don't there will likely be serious consequences. What about bringing the power of technology to enable more flexibility in these situations?
Our next guest on the Fintech One-on-One Podcast is Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins, she is the CEO and Co-Founder of Promise. They have a unique product that allows users to use almost any payment method to pay government bills. Need to pay your parking ticket by Venmo or your water bill by installments using Cash App? No problem. Promise is bringing the power of fintech to a huge but overlooked sector of the economy.

Worth your time
The biggest challenge now with the amount of content is to find something worth your time. I came across this podcast while doing research for a Capstone project for a Harvard short course certificate. It was so worth it. Very thoughtful interrogation of the ideas, clear presentation no hype and marketing teased out lots of information. Great resource.
