Michael Jordaan was the CEO to one of South Africa’s largest banks FNB with a customer base of nine million. With more than 20 years’ experience in the financial services sector and nearly a decade at the helm of the Bank, Michael oversaw the move away from traditional banking, and led FNB to be named the “World’s Most Innovative Bank” in the 2012 Global Banking Innovation Awards, held in Washington DC.
He is the 2013 Sunday Times Business Leader Award winner and in 2014 he was awarded CNBC The All Africa Business Leader of the Year award. Today he is the founder and CEO of Montegray Capital – a private venture capital arm that invests in businesses with high growth potential.
Matt sat down with Michael to discuss everything from entrepreneurship, startups, the blockchain and its impact on the global financial systems and we even explore how to overcome fear when it comes to making big decisions in business.
It’s not every day that you get to sit down with one of the most prominent personalities in South African business so I hope you enjoy this interview as much as we did.
