In this episode of Tech Talks Daily, I sits down with Monika Liikamaa, Co-CEO of Enfuce, for a conversation that takes us from a hotel lobby to a moving taxi—illustrating that innovation never stands still.
With operations across Europe and numerous accolades under its belt, Enfuce is at the vanguard of modern payment processing. The discussion kicks off with the audacious strategic decision by Enfuce to move card issuing entirely to the cloud, positioning the company as a trailblazer in a highly competitive industry.
However, the episode isn’t just a chronicle of tech milestones; it’s also a study in unconventional leadership. With Monika at the helm as Co-CEO—a rarity in any industry, but particularly in fintech—Enfuce is challenging the status quo on multiple fronts. Monika elucidates how this distinctive leadership model has been pivotal for the company, especially in navigating the complex fintech landscape.
Amid these business insights, Monika confronts an issue that the tech world often sidesteps: gender imbalance in leadership. With women making up a paltry percentage of CEOs in financial services globally, Monika’s perspective serves as both a wake-up call and a beacon of change. Tune in to discover how Enfuce is not just leading in technology, but also in shaping the future landscape of leadership in fintech.
