By Nicole Casperson

Michelle Tran is building a community, meeting fintech bro culture head on. Find out why she will no longer be talked over.

Michelle Tran is the Head of Enterprise Sales and SVP at Vestwell, a platform working to close the savings gap. She’s also the Founder of NYC Fintech Women and Dreamers // Doers, a collaboration and mentorship community.

Nicole and Michelle get into her inspiring family story of immigration in tough circumstances, why she’s determined to keep on giving back, and the aha moment when she found herself talked over at a pitch meeting, triggering her mission to create a supportive community and mentoring other women in fintech.
