FintekNews Deal of the Day – Thrive Global Lands $7M

In the case of most new ventures, it is quite straightforward that they are a “fintech”.  A P2P platform, an online lender, a new robo – pretty clear cut – and that is what FintekNews is committed to covering. 

However, Thrive Global is NONE of those, but I do believe that its mission of “Changing the way we work and live” has profound impacts for corporate profitability, which is what the objective of any new fintech should be – to provide a service that reduces costs or increases profits, or both.  The directive of this new venture by Huffington Post founder Ariana Huffington is also one near to our heart, and we’ve made numerous career and lifestyle changes in our household over the years to lead more well-balanced lives, so we’re going to stray just a bit for today to feature this new venture as our “FintekNews Deal of the Day”. 

The following quote appears on the landing page for the future site

““For far too long we have been operating under a collective delusion that burning out is the necessary price for achieving success. This couldn’t be less true. All the latest science is conclusive that, in fact, not only is there no trade-off between living a well-rounded life and high performance, but performance is actually improved when we prioritize our health and well-being. It’s time to move from knowing what to do to actually doing it.”

We couldn’t agree more and can’t wait for the launch.
