Mario Bottone – Thinking Capital & The Future of Business Financing

In this episode we sit down with Mario Bottone of Thinking Capital. Mario is a career business leader and CRO at Thinking Capital. Thinking Capital is often referred to as one of the first Canadian FinTechs, before “FinTech” was popular.

As one of the largest business lenders in Canada, Thinking Capital has a unique perspective on the small business industry, challenges faced by entrepreneurs and business owners, and proven tactics to overcome those challenges.

We are excited to share Mario’s insights with all of our fans. Enjoy!
