Closing the Gender Gap in Banking and Fintech

Banking has historically been an industry founded by men, run by men, with products created for men. Recently, progress has been made, but the gender bias in banking still runs deep. Surprisingly, this same bias exists in fintech, where there are far too few female fintech founders and too few women working at these new start-ups.

The question is, is this a supply issue or a demand issue? More importantly, how do we address these imbalances that continue to impact the funding mechanism, the ability to get new ideas heard, and the potential for innovations geared to women?

We are joined today by Neha Mehta, founder of Femtech Partners, a consulting firm based out of Singapore helping fintech start-ups get a foothold in Asia and promoting women in fintech. On the show, Neha discusses some of the challenges women face in getting an equal opportunity for funding, having a seat at the management table, working at start-ups, and having the ability to create solutions geared to the female market.
