Starling Bank is at the heart of modern banking. As a fully digital service, it means small business owners can access their bank accounts from their phone with 24/7 support.
In the podcast, Symmie discusses the original vision of Starling Bank's founder Anne Boden for launching the business, her views on the future of physical bank branches and how the company is supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Another exciting development for small businesses is open banking, which helps you move, manage and make more of your money.
David Beardmore is from the Open Banking Implementation Entity, an organisation that creates software standards and industry guidelines to drive competition, innovation and transparency in UK retail banking. David joins the podcast to explain how open banking can benefit small businesses and how it has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
