My guest today is Bence Jendruszak, Cofounder of Hungarian Startup Seon Fraud Fighters, who started Seon right out of university and has very quickly built a revolutionary digital fraud prevention platform serving clients like Air France, Patreon and Ladbrokes.

Bence has been integral to this outstanding success and has already been featured in FT’s Sifted, TechCrunch and in Forbes' '‘Hot Startups to Watch in Europe’.

In my conversation with Bence we focused on how they built an enterprise-grade security product that allowed people to buy security like Netflix - self-service trial, signup, and cancelation without needing long implementation cycles or onboarding costs.
