Yannick Steinmann holds the position of an Intern for FinLeap. He joined the company builder in May 2016.
Yannick seems right away like a very excited-to-learn person. Instead of being tied to a business area, he looks for opportunities in entrepreneurship, and, thus, found the new and developing fintech industry.
Yannick joined FinLeap in May 2016 as an Intern focused on Business Development. As such, he supports a new pre-launch project by helping with the marketing strategy, business and product development. Yannick learned about HitFox and FinLeap through his university where he participated in recruiting days and an alumni meeting. He is in his final year of a Master’s degree and has experience in innovation consultancy, statistical forecasting and business development. Today, we will interview him on the FinLeap experience and his first tasks on the job.
