The talk covers the background and “pitch” of a financial technology startup, SilverOak. Founded by a Darwinian and fellow Cambridge students, SilverOak believes the key for emerging markets betterment is through small to medium size enterprises (SMEs); SMEs generate 65% of new jobs in the US.

SilverOak (SO) applies an existing model (crowdfunding lending) to a new geography (cross-border EM, beginning in India). SO uses invoice financing to help SMEs who suffer from onerous terms from multinationals.
