Yanir Yakutiel, Lumi

By Dexter Cousins on 19/11/2020

Dexter Cousins chats to Yanir Yakutiel, CEO and Founder of Lumi, Australia's fastest-growing, 100% digital, business lender. 

Yanir and the team have built a platform from scratch to deliver a 100% digital process from lead generation, origination, credit risk assessment through to loan execution.

Yanir is now on his second startup, as a native Israeli, entrepreneurship is in his DNA. We talk about what makes Israel such a special place for innovation in Fintech. 

Although Australia has a very different culture, Yanir has been able to distill the Israeli values and approach, applying them successfully to Lumi.

Yanir shares his tips for building a diverse, high-performing team at the forefront of innovation in lending. And in the spirit of keeping things authentic, Yanir delivers in the traditional Israeli way, with a lot of chutzpah!
