STARTING NOW: Fintech Stories with TicketCo and Quantfol.io
What happens when you lose a substantial amount of your income due to unforeseen circumstances and how do you stay afloat? For many startups, the year started with high ambitions, growth strategies to be implemented, funding rounds and more. In our first edition of Fintech Stories we explore how entrepreneurs like TicketCo and Quantfol.io are adapting to survive.
To get a sense of how the novel coronavirus has changed the landscape for many startups, we’re inviting two cluster startups, TicketCo and Quantfol.io, to give us an insight into their thinking during these pivotal times. Both companies have felt the harsh impact of Covid-19 in various ways and have had to turn things around quickly and swiftly. We look forward to hear from the founders of both companies and learn from their experience.

Both companies were recently feautred in Shifter about this topic (in Norwegian):
- Da 90 prosent av inntektene forsvant over natta snudde TicketCo opp ned på organisasjonen
- Aksjeroboten kunne gjøre andre rike. men gründerne slet med å hente kapital: så gjorde de et salgstriks som fikk både kunder og investorer til å juble
