February 2023 Embedded Finance News

Hi folks, welcome back to the February 2023 edition of Embedded Finance News. I continue to make small changes in each edition to see what works best.

From this edition onwards, I decided to exclude any funding and change in leadership-news. This means the news overview will be shorter but also more relevant for you. Additionally, I continue to focus on news from non-financial brands. I will still include news from other EF stakeholders such as infrastructure providers, but I will make sure that it is a relevant news piece for this audience.

On a personal side, I have spent the last few weeks in my second home Mumbai and am flying back to Europe later this week. I used the time over here to think about how to grow EF Review.

As a first step, I will be hosting the first EF Review in person event on May 9th in Hamburg (see here) and I am launching a podcast in Q2.

Additionally, I am planning to test a weekly newsletter instead of a monthly edition. The weekly newsletter will be shorter but also more focused on certain key news. You can expect this in either March or April in your inbox. Do you have a preference for monthly or weekly newsletter? Please let me know.

๐Ÿ“ฌ Thanks to the 15 new subscribers since the last post. Do you know a friend or coworker who is interested in Embedded Finance? Please share EF Review with them.
