The Founders, Futurists, and Failures podcast takes you on a journey inside entrepreneurial minds. Conor Flynn interviews people in the entrepreneurship space to give you a candid view of their thought processes, startup struggles, and strategic tactics.
On this episode, Zufi Deo discusses BizGees, a company providing alternative finance solutions for refugee entrepreneurs. We cover the causes of refugee issues, as well as the experiences of refugee populations.
Zufi explains how BizGees used design thinking to work backward from the problem and identify an impactful solution. Using fintech solutions and a human-centric approach, BizGees launches refugees on their entrepreneurial journeys. They have also partnered with several organizations, including artFix and WSV, to provide holistic solutions to challenges that refugees face.
