 "Have grit and persevere, no matter WHAT happens, because you are so intrigued and attached to an idea.”

March's special Women's History Month content series continues. Mballa Mendouga (AICPA & CIMA, Durham, USA) talks to a Hong Kong-born tech disruptor who dropped out of University in her early 20s to launch a multi-million dollar startup called BitSpark. Based in Hong Kong, Bitspark is a remittance platform operating out of Hong Kong which uses blockchain for users to send cash overseas faster at lower exchange rates. It's expanding in traditionally unbanked populations and markets, and also operates a virtual platform for crypto-currency and Bitcoin trading.

  

WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH:

Throughout March we'll feature a special selection of interviews with women who've become movers and shakers in the accounting, finance and business professional sphere. There'll be episodes every Wednesday as usual, with 'Friday Focus' episodes for some extra weekend inspiration.
