Meet Mads Hansen, entrepreneur and maker of the best API in Fintech. Confounded TV Series 1 #8
Just back in London from Copenhagen, we touch on how normal life is compared to the UK and how people need to meet people to build real relationships before going on to talk through his business and how he has built something really special. A graduate of Copenhagen Business School, Mads honed his knowledge of lending at Zopa and Lendable growing a wide network of contacts and the knowledge and skills needed to try and attempt a super complex API for financial lending. For the last 3 years Mads has been building and championing his platform. A single API where consumer facing businesses and websites can allow their visitors to apply to multiple lenders simultaneously. As a platform and by re-defining the broker model Accepty makes finance fairer for consumers and doesn’t keep the customer details leaving the credit introducers with the relationship from the beginning.With multiple types of credit available on the platform, his company now counts comparison sites, loan brokers, finance apps, lenders and banks as clients. Accepty is becoming the leading search and comparison engine for credit in the UK, powering businesses that truly care for customer outcome and responsible data handling. Mads has retained Accepty's independence so there are no vested interests - this means their service is not favouring higher commissions to the detriment of customers and unlike other providers, they do not compete against their partners and only succeed when their partners succeed.Find out more > Accepty.co.ukWatch:YouTube http://bit.ly/confounded2Confounded TV is the people podcast with amazingly successful and interesting guests and a high octane energy blast.
