Lending innovation in Finland, with Kim Ahola (Creditstar)

When I moved to Scandinavia, Finland quickly became one of my favourite countries to work in. That much colder than my home in Copenhagen, it was where I first experienced 'proper snow'; visiting Helsinki before Moscow, meant it was where I got my first up-close experience of Russian-Byzantine architecture and a sense of being truly far from home; and thanks to its stoic people, it taught me to present to an audience with near zero interaction, a skill that served me well when Covid lockdowns meant I was suddenly doing all my webinars to a muted computer screen 🤣

So it was a delight to be returning for this episode, at least conceptually, as I speak to my old colleague Kim Ahola about his work at Creditstar and the emergence of tech-first digital lending in Finland and the broader region.

You'll find Creditstar at their home page (www.creditstar.com/) or if you want to find the Finnish business directly, that's at https://www.creditstar.fi/

Kim also mentioned Monefit, that's at www.monefit.com (and coming to the UK soon at https://www.monefit.co.uk/)

Kim and Creditstar are both on LinkedIn, at www.linkedin.com/in/kimahola/ and https://www.linkedin.com/company/creditstar-group-as/ respectively
