Q&A

London is my favourite city. London is a melting pot infused with global influences. Food, art and culture from almost everywhere in the world is represented there. What is there not to like? (the weather, maybe). The city is extra special for me because I achieved a lot of personal and professional milestones there. I got my first job out of college there, I met my wife there, my daughter was born there and of course, I started work with Apis there.

Young, dynamic and increasingly tech savvy populations in these markets are looking to innovative solutions to improve quality of life. Growth Markets are often unburdened by legacy infrastructure and networks presenting white space opportunities for entrepreneurs across several sectors. At Apis, we are fortunate to partner with companies delivering truly innovative solutions within the Financial Services sector in Growth Markets.
