Monzo / Tristan Thomas / Head of Marketing / Crowdfunding
By Tom Ollerton
“We are on a mission to make banking cool, unofficially” this quote comes from Tristan Thomas, Marketing Director of Monzo this week on the #ShinyNewObject podcast. Today Monzo are launching their third round of crowdfunding. To put this in context their first round raised £1M in ninety seconds and their second raise of £2.5M was oversubscribed by around £10M. As of 3pm today, if you are Monzo customer you can invest between £10 and £2K in Monzo - all via the app. Tristan is crazily ambitious, bold and humble stating that “every prediction I make is wrong” but my bet with today’s announcement he’s most certainly going to be right.
