Episode 112: Niche Banking

This week, #NicheBanking is the topic of choice – led by Nina Mohanty and Meaghan Johnson! Rik Coeckelbergs (The Banking Scene) explains the concept of niche banking and how he had the freedom to create his own personal vision on future banking, which is the main driver for The Banking Scene. After the break, who would have the Nerve to build a bank for the music industry? John Waupsh would, and he explains us how playing in the niche banking space for artists is also important and how it makes their lives much easier, and also helps music to be created, and music groups to stay together.
