In honor of International Women's Day in March, we speak with Debbie Watkins, CEO and Co-Founder of Lucy to share about her career beginning in the UK and shift to focus on financial institutions and startups in Southeast Asia. We talk about the unique challenges that women face in accessing financial services, especially in emerging markets and the surprising lack of private sector focus on this customer base. Debbie also shares some of her secrets for women working in male-dominated spaces.
Lucy is a fintech focused on empowering women. They recently raised 575K USD in their pre-seed round and launched the beta version of the Lucy app. You can learn more about them by visiting welucy.com.
