Date: Thursday April 26th, at 6.00 pm
Location: Cafe Amsterdam – Oslo.
Topic this evening: BANKING THE UNBANKED POPULATION
Shaun Deanesh from the Startup company HEDGEIN (working name) is going to talk about their startup plans. Hedgein wants to address the lack of access to banking services in South East Asia, starting with Indonesia.
The concept is to give customers a prepaid MasterCard and a mobile wallet that is both app and USSD (text messaging ) based. Shaun is going to talk about the merits of a decentralised approach – a blockchain based wallet – versus a traditional one (which requires a banking licence or partner).
Shaun has a background in FRM, investment banking.
This is a free event, everybody is welcome!
