Yapily enables businesses and consumers around the world to share data and access payment infrastructure. As the world moves towards an open economy, Yapily exists to power the innovative solutions that will ultimately transform the way we all interact with financial products and services.

With a degree in Civil Engineering, Martin decided to follow the well-trodden path into consulting, focusing on the Financial Services sector at Deloitte. Martin later on joined the world of FinTech startup and scaleups – where he co-founded Modulr, a new digital payment service which now has a team of over 200 people across three offices.

Always looking for his next challenge, Martin joined the team at Yapily at the end of 2020, stepping into his role as COO, in the middle of a global pandemic.
