Born in Finland, Marko Sjoblom is a fintech academic, technology entrepreneur and the mastermind behind the Plugin Overdraft. He is the Founder & CEO of Fiinu, with 20-years of experience from Wall Street and the City of London. He is a doctoral candidate in AI and disruptive innovation with earlier degrees from Cambridge and the University of Bath.
He previously developed the world’s first fully automated lending robot and its algorithms. The robot has lent and recovered over £1 billion in overdraft-style small credits.
