Interview with Les Riedl, CEO of GlobeOne.
GlobeOne was established in 2013 by a group of socially minded entrepreneurs – all accomplished leaders in their respective industries – who are aligned on a mission to create financial opportunities for the growing number of dissatisfied, underserved, and socially conscious millennial consumers to improve and enhance their financial well-being.
Capitalizing on the worldwide explosion of access to mobile-based devices and the development of new technologies, GlobeOne provides access to a social banking solution based on an innovative global financial ecosystem for a community of networked Member Banks, Corporate Members and Individual Members. The new ecosystem not only provides for the Individual Members’ banking needs but also a global solution for financial exclusion and immobility.
Through GlobeOne’s innovative digital platform, the GlobeOne Member Banks will offer a demand deposit account with a debit card, a security savings account, a secured line of credit, domestic and international transfers between GlobeOne Members, and access to the patent-pending global income-building SocialBoostTM program, which gives Individual Members the opportunity to earn a new income stream and build savings while helping those who need it most.
Our goal is to have 50 million Individual Members in 30 countries through a network of Member Banks by 2020. Our priority markets are U.S., Mexico, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Colombia, India, China, Philippines, Brazil, EU, Nigeria, and Indonesia.
