A Serial Fintech Entrepreneur on the Lessons from Failure and Success

Toby Babb & Aidan Rushby


Joining Toby on the latest episode of FinTech Focus TV is Aidan Rushby, CEO of Carmoola.

Aidan delves into the genesis of Carmoola, inspired by his own frustrations with buying used cars and an insightful exploration of IPO prospectuses. 

His relentless drive to innovate in the FinTech space led to the development of a revolutionary mobile app that empowers consumers with instant car financing options, challenging the traditional car dealership model.

Aidan emphasises the importance of continuous learning and idea generation, reflecting on his entrepreneurial journey and the lessons learned from his first business venture. He also discusses the strategic fundraising efforts and the critical role of selecting the right investors who share a long-term vision for the company.

The pair explore the significance of building a high-talent density team and the impact of automation and data-driven decision-making on scaling the business efficiently.
