The way people work and spend money has changed dramatically and will continue to do so, because of technology. We’ve seen the rise of the gig economy, e-commerce, and Buy Now Pay Later options, all powered by financial technology innovations. But one crucial part of this dynamic that has not changed, and has in fact gotten much worse, is how people are paid. The idea behind Level is to change that fact. They want to empower and enable workers to become better custodians of their income, providing instant access to their wages.

Stephen Holliday is the CEO and Founder of Level. Before launching his own fintech startup, Stephen worked as a stockbroker for Deutsche Bank and managed a $2 billion hedge fund at GLG Partners. He saw an opportunity to combine his financial knowledge, appetite for risk, and desire to affect real change, which resulted in the creation of Level.
