Dora Ziambra, COO of Azimo (a Frog Capital portfolio company), spoke to PaySpace Magazine at Money20/20 about fintech, remittances and how to scale a business.

The Azimo team is passionate about driving financial innovation that allows customers to easily send money from mobile devices, but it is all about the speed as a seamless service is what consumers require and the team is excited for what the future holds, especially with the trends towards embedded finance.

When asked about what ‘money transfers in future’ would look like, Azimo’s COO, Dora Ziambra explains “right now, it’s been mobile to mobile and people have this anticipation of being as seamless and as instant as possible. There’s still a high percentage of people who still go offline, and there’s also a grey market of things that are not recorded. But I only see one direction which is digital and more mobile on both ends, the sender and the recipient.”

Ziambra goes on to explain what the typical customer would look like in the future, “the customer should be able to move the money as easily as they send a text message. I think the customer will still demand the best service possible. And I don’t see any other way but to move away from cards.”
