I’m looking forward to reading Anne Boden’s (of Starling Bank) remarkable #fintech story this bank holiday weekend.

In addition to founding the fast-growing digital bank, Anne sat on Tech Nation’s first FinTech Delivery Panel (https://lnkd.in/gbsKy3s) when it was formed in 2017.

The book has a great blurb!

“There were those who felt they had an obligation to set me straight and explain point by point just what a ludicrous undertaking this was, particularly for somebody who was not a city grandee.

“Who the hell did I think I was, imagining I could make my mark on the sector?

“Where were all my high-profile backers?

“What chance did someone like me think I stood?”
