Funding requirementsI invest in Pre-Seed and Seed Emerging Markets Fintech

While I'm focused on emerging markets fintech, I also consider non-fintech companies where embedded finance has the potential to be 25%+ of the revenue.

Evidence of early-traction and SAM are important in my analysis. SAM = # of viable customers x annual customer value.
