Monzo in the media


(Yen Pham) #1

Hello all!

A few of you were mentioning that you’d like to see an official thread where we can keep track of Monzo mentions in the media, and let you know about any appearances we’re aware of ahead of time. So let’s use this thread here :relaxed:

There’s been quite a lot in the past few weeks (between Series E and Savings Pots), but here’s a non-exhaustive selection:

The Evening Standard, TechCrunch, the Financial Times, CityAM, Reuters, Forbes, and Yahoo covered Series E, but our CEO Tom B warned against thinking of “investment as an achievement” in itself
Mediatel published an interview with our Head of Marketing and Community, Tristan
The Telegraph, TechCrunch and This Is Money covered Savings Pots
– We got a quick mention from Cal Henderson, the CTO and co-founder of Slack, in an interview for Monocle’s Entrepreneurs podcast about how companies use Slack to communicate and build company culture (it’s around the 9 minute mark)
– The Sunday Times style section featured Monzo hot coral (though they called it “Monzo orange” :tangerine::thinking:)
– And, last but not at all least, we were alluded to by someone on First Dates who was enviously eyeing their dinner companion’s hot coral card
