CEO and Co-founder Martins Sulte founded the award-winning peer-to-peer lending marketplace 'Mintos', which to date is the top European P2P lending market and has raised EUR 2 million in funding to facilitate growth. The company's mission is to facilitate free and efficient movement of capital from investors to those who need it.
Martins gained more than six years of experience in corporate finance at the leading Nordic corporate bank SEB Enskilda. He holds an MBA from INSEAD (Singapore, France), which is where the idea for 'Mintos' took root. After encountering problems receiving a loan from a traditional bank, he realized that alternative finance solutions could provide the answer!
Martins also holds B.Sc. degree from the Stockholm School of Economics Riga, which is the top business school in the Baltic/Nordic region and is also a Supervisory Board Member at the Alternative Financial Services Association of Latvia. In his free time, Martins is a passionate poker player.
