The fintech industry worldwide is still playing catch-up regarding female participation. On that note, Helena Polybank, CPO of Mendel, shared the following:
"This financing round not only represents a major milestone for Mendel, but also as an inspiration for women in the technology sector. I hope that by sharing this success story I’d be able to empower entrepreneurs though my mindset of “it is possible if you really want it.”
Alan Karpovsky, shared insights on the relevance of Mendel's product in today's market:
Mendel’s new round is an important statement for the Mexican Fintech market, since it reaffirms the huge potential that still exists in this sector. “It is evident that there is a pressing need from companies like Mercado Libre, FEMSA, or AB InBev (Grupo Modelo) to find a strategic partner that supports them in their path to financial digitalization. The good news is that Mendel is the right partner for this journey,” Karposvky added.
