Every week the show host John Siracusa talks with impressive fintech leaders and entrepreneurs, through conversation uncovers the remarkable stories behind them, their creations and the most important topics in fintech.
In this episode the host John Siracusa chats with Sam Bobley, Co-founder and CEO of Ocrolus. Ocrolus analyzes financial documents, regardless of format and quality, with over 99% accuracy. Today, they work with brands such as Ondeck, BlueVine, Funding Circle, Enova, Sofi, Lending Club, Upgrade and many others. How Sam realized the model of Ocrolus was quite surprising. Have you ever gone to a website and confirmed that you’re not a robot? Of course you have, but what you're also doing is helping Google digitize millions of books. By choosing pictures with fences in it or typing out the words in an image you’re also helping train Google's AI simultaneously as you confirm you’re not a robot. Sam shares the origin story of Ocrolus from his father's influence and how everything changed once QED invested in their A round.
Tune in and Listen.
