I had the pleasure of sitting down with GoCardless founder Hiroki Takeuchi, MarketInvoice co-founder and CEO Anil Stocker and Stripe’s head of UK growth James Allgrove at unBound Digital last week to find out how they are changing finance, why Black Friday was a high street flop and whether big banks are friend or foe.
