On the 11th and 12th of December, some of the best minds of the fintech industry will come to Berlin for the TechCrunch Disrupt. As we meet with some of the most well-known tech CEOs and investors, the fintech agenda is particularly full.
On the main stage, I will ask GoCardless CEO Hiroki Takeuchi about the company's impressive development. For direct debit payments, GoCardless has the opportunity to become a world leader. The startup has developed an API that allows you to collect payments on a global scale, even if your customers are on the other side of the planet.
