FinLeap is especially exciting, because successful digital entrepreneurs join experts from the financial- and insurance industry in developing innovative solutions for private and corporate clients. I am really excited about the new job and to support the founders of FinLeap’s portfolio companies with building sustainable fintech businesses.”
Ramin Niroumand, Co-founder and Managing Partner of FinLeap: “We are pleased that Dr. Carolin Gabor is joining our management team.
