Today was my last day at Yeeld. Reflecting on that 3-year experience is not easy, but the first thing that comes to mind is the team. 😢
We managed to build a challenger bank reaching 100 000 users in less than 18 months.📈
This was done with modest funding and a tiny product team:
I'd like to address 1000 thanks to my colleagues for trusting us and engaging on this project. You can be very proud of the quality of the product you managed to ship. I loved the interesting product and technical discussions we had (mostly asynchronously). I also liked how we managed to create a culture of ownership with a strong focus on delivering value for our users. ❤️❤️❤️
The technical challenges were really not disappointing:
Working at Yeeld was a fantastic experience for me. It helped me progress on a daily basis as an entrepreneur. I learned so much about the fintech sector, new technical challenges, and building an effective and unique company culture. . 😊
Finally, I'd like to thank @Nagib for offering me this role and being my business partner for 3 years! 🙏
My departure from the company does not mean the end of the story. Raphaël will be taking over as CTO, and though I can't share any numbers, I can tell that Yeeld has many months of runway on its bank account.
Yeeld was my second company, and I've been an entrepreneur for more than 10 years now. For the next few weeks, I'll be doing some consulting work for other startups, and I'm lucky enough to already have a few clients keeping me busy for the next 4 weeks.
