August 30, 2023: The art of navigating profitable course corrections

Meet Michael Garrity of Financeit on the latest episode of the Founders Journey, find new ways to connect with technologists in Canada, and more events news for you

New Podcast:
Michael Garrity of Financeit

Michael Garrity is the CEO and Founder of Financeit

Financeit was founded in 2011 by Michael Garrity and Casper Wong. With the creation of Financeit, they sought to bridge the gap between financial institutions and everyday consumers seeking accessible and convenient financing options.

The company recognized that the traditional lending process often presented challenges to consumers, including complex paperwork, stringent credit requirements, and lengthy approval times. In response, FinanceIt introduced a novel approach that harnessed the power of technology to streamline and democratize the financing process.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Moving from political arenas to entrepreneurial ventures

  • How to craft solutions that change the game

  • Unveiling allies for your vision

  • How to convince banks to back your bold business vision

  • The art of navigating profitable course corrections

  • Lessons from the Goldman merger

  • Mastering the art of sealing the deal

  • Thriving amidst shifting sands

  • Forging unique paths in idea generation and growth
