By founders, for founders

We’re side-hustlers, founders, freelancers, and innovators. We’re using our knowledge and resources to build bridges—not walls.

Azlo is driving economic opportunity and financial inclusion by empowering a new generation of entrepreneurs with the tools and knowledge to start, scale and grow their businesses.

We are building a new banking experience where you won’t get hit with minimum balance charges or hidden fees. You won’t spend time driving to a branch and waiting in line, or juggling multiple tools to view your transactions and send invoices. At Azlo, we’re making business banking simple—so you can get back to running your business.

Building things is innately satisfying. Building things that help others even more so. Building things that help others build things themselves is the most impactful enterprise I can imagine.

From Haiti to Zimbabwe, I spent years launching digital financial products around the world - enabling entrepreneurs to save and pay more securely, efficiently, and cheaply. Now I’m thrilled to continue this same mission at Azlo.

Entrepreneurship has enough hurdles to overcome on its own. Banking shouldn't be one of them.

I know firsthand the struggles small businesses have with cashflow, getting paid, fees... I think what we are doing at Azlo is unique because we are approaching it as a problem to solve. Not a market to sell to.
