Anil Stocker, CEO & Founder MarketInvoice

Whilst working in financial services in his early twenties and spending time with many company CFOs, Anil realised how difficult it was for small businesses to raise the funding they needed to drive their business forward. His ambition was to use technology and data to completely reinvent how businesses go about financing their growth, and breathe fresh life into outdated financial products.

Anil co-founded the business in 2011 and has led the growth of the company, team and its culture since launch. Anil was listed as one of Forbes Magazine's Finance '30 under 30' and has won awards for entrepreneurship and innovation. Anil is on the UK government-backed UK FinTech Delivery Panel to drive policy recommendations for the industry.

Prior to GoCardless Nicola worked at MOO (the closest she got to working with animals) as GM, International.
