On the first episode of Inside the Vacuum, we speak to Ivan Muck, the co-founder and CEO of Family Finances. Growing up in a family of musicians, he dreamed of becoming a professional drummer and ended up helping banks and fintechs understand the needs of millennials and teenagers.
Ivan speaks openly about the challenges they faced over the first few years and how co-founding the company with his brother Ferenc as a product designer and their friend David as CTO has brought them together through shared values and passions.
