George Trewhella, Founder and Global Lead said:
“At Storm2 we are building a growth partner that is able to deeply understand the problems that FinTechs face, and fix them by finding the right team to take them to that next level. FinTech is one of the most exciting areas to work in today, and the ideas and innovations coming out of startups around the world will be tomorrow’s everyday solutions to financial issues. Our deep network of FinTech-specific talent have the skills and knowledge to scale companies, build and launch incredible products, and take them to market. The team are networking constantly and are the best in the world at what they do.”
Storm2 strives to tackle the diversity crisis in FinTech as it’s proven that companies with a diverse workforce out-innovate and are more successful than those without. For FinTech to thrive it needs to redress the balance. The diversity issue is one of key challenges that Storm2 is addressing to help the sector thrive. As well as experts in hiring and retention, they are also market leaders in providing sector-specific information on renumeration packages, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and market trends.
Positioning itself as a one-stop specialist shop for fast-growing FinTech companies, Storm2 uses its investors, scale, and infrastructure to keep up with innovative companies as they grow. They understand the pain points that startups go through, as they are going through them themselves, so can offer a much more personal approach to the hiring process.
