Here’s what we talked about:

Have you ever had an absolutely fantastic idea, but at the end of the day, the product wasn't able to reach market or you weren't able to scale the business? 

My guest today on the #fintechscalingshow, Derk Roodhuyzen de Vries, the CEO and co-founder of Fixico shares how he came up with a revolutionary idea of how to digitize the car repair process. 

Derk opens up about the process he had to go through and is still going through in order to really shift the mindset of a market that was, and in some instances still is outdated, towards a digital future - this is the Fixico mission (and what a mission it is)
