Embrace change, take risks, and disrupt yourself
Hosted by top 5 banking and fintech influencer, Jim Marous, Banking Transformed highlights the challenges facing the banking industry. Featuring some of the top minds in business, this podcast explores how financial institutions can prepare for the future of banking.
In September of 2020, we interviewed Colin Walsh just after Varo became the first challenger bank to receive a national bank charter. So much has happened in banking and the economy over the past two years and especially since the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, impacting both traditional and non-traditional financial institutions.
After a major funding round last year, Varo made a number of major changes to respond to competitive and marketplace challenges, including a reduction in marketing expenses and staff, a refocus on product innovation, and a focus on existing customer engagement.
We revisit Colin Walsh, founder and CEO of Varo on the Banking Transformed podcast. In this episode, Walsh discusses the opportunities and challenges Varo has faced, and provides insight into the future of Varo and neobanks in a world disrupted by the recent events at Silicon Valley Bank.
