Over the summer, we’re going to publish separately a number of audio interviews we’ve recorded at conferences and other events in the past few months for our weekly podcast.

We’re kicking off things with a recent interview with the affable Jacob de Geer, one of the founders and chief exec of Swedish mobile payments startup iZettle.

We caught up with de Geer at the recent Brilliant Minds conference in Stockholm, iZettle’s home town; we discussed everything from the startup’s growth to the relationship between banks and fintech companies, and Sweden’s startup scene.

Enjoy and don’t forget to subscribe to our podcast on iTunes or SoundCloud.
