One Bold, Cancer-Fighting Computer Scientist Is Creating Consumer-Based Financial Visualizations w/ Brandon Dewitt
It would be easy to chalk Brandon’s passion into something driven by his near-death experiences. But that’s only half the story. Brandon Dewitt is CTO at MX, a company that grew from the merging of his own company, MyJibe. At his heart, he’s a computer scientist. He wants to help people solve real-life problems, by separating out those things computers do well to help people with their lives. But a while back, he found out he had over a dozen tumors. The docs gave him 30 to 90 days. That was over 4 years ago. On this episode of the Payments Innovation Podcast, Brandon discusses his passion for consumer-friendly, computer-driven financial analysis built for the everyday person. What we talked about: Everyday people need a different financial visualization Visibility for consumers Showing a consumer’s “trajectory,” with colors and graphs, not just the exact numbers Consumers don’t want to look at their own numbers The banking industry is becoming more consumer-focused Banks actually want to do what’s best for the consumer Brandon’s beating more than cancer Financial services is really good at reducing risk To ensure that you never miss an episode of Payments Innovation, subscribe on Apple Podcasts, or Spotify, or here.
