About this Event
Join us with your own coffee and toast from the comfort of where you are working!
Tech East is keeping the regional tech community connected, learning and sharing knowledge with each other and from guest speakers.
Any interested people wanting to find out how tech can transform their business are welcome to join in too.
Our speaker Andries Smit, Founder and CEO of Upside talks to us on Money Saving Apps.
Upside, is a London-based fintech startup which aims to utilise open banking and AI to help consumers build effortless savings. Upside has a pretty novel way of using auto-cashback as the catalyst to help an ignored majority start saving, and then other ‘found money’ use cases to accelerate their savings.
Andries, CEO and Founder of Upside. He is passionate to help customers save more. Nearly 50% of people in the UK (and elsewhere) don’t have enough savings to fall back on in time of need. This is more evident now during this pandemic than ever before.
Andries’ 20+ years of experience in financial services working across the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Canada, and South Africa, has given him a broad view of how different countries and cultures save. That alongside his experience in running wealth business DollarDex and loyalty business SME Discounts, has brought him to his mission with Upside: make savings effortless through the power of found money.
