Success story: Droplet

 

 

Steffan Aquarone, co-founder at Droplet, pitched during 2012 and has gone on to hire a Head of Brand who used to be Senior Vice President for Brand Management at Visa Europe. Read about his experience here…

 

 

"Droplet is a mobile money app that lets you load cash onto your phone and send payments to anyone, for free.  We started Droplet because we believe the world of payment, banking and finance is ripe for disruption and that we can apply the power and freedom of the web to make money more equitable.

 

By routing transactions over the web (encrypted of course) we expose the fact that moving money doesn’t actually cost anything.  This is just like how Skype made international calls free by routing voice over the web, and of course there are many different business models available to you once you have millions of people using your platform.

 

Our team already had the experience in business, technology and software design.  When we joined Pitching for Management we were actually looking for an economic advisor to join us.  I gave a provocative presentation about the future of finance, which seemed to annoy a few people in the audience.  But it struck a chord with someone hugely experienced from the established world of payments – ex Visa Europe in fact - and she has now joined our board as our brand director."

"Through Pitching for Management, we found one of our core team in an evening. I can't think of another way this could possibly have happened so swiftly."
