‘Freelancers need a business and personal account under one roof’: Oxygen’s Hussein Ahmed

As more challenger banks launch, we’re seeing the emergence of more niche offerings, serving a distinct set of users with nuanced needs. 

Oxygen, a challenger based in San Francisco, recognized that freelancers aren’t being served well. These people don’t identify as businesses and yet they are in business.

Founder and CEO of Oxygen, Hussein Ahmed is one of the hardest working fintech CEOs. He joins us on the podcast to talk about why Oxygen essentially merged a business account with a personal account to serve this demographic. He talks about building and scaling a startup using talent across geographic boundaries and what his plans are next for the upstart banking product.
