You’ve seen them in your checkout carts and they follow you online shopping: Buy-Now-Pay-Later companies have become significant players on the fintech scene.

In the inaugural episode of “The Pnyx”, your hosts Alex and Vikas discuss Affirm, Klarna, Afterpay and all the other actors that constitute the Buy-Now-Pay-Later (BNPL) phenomenon. Joined by panelists Marshall Lux and Jeremy Solomon, we dive deep into the pros and cons of BNPL, exploring its potential benefits for consumers, the inherent risks, and the implications for financial transparency and inclusion.

The Pnyx
The fintech future is a choice we make. Join Vikas Raj and Alex Lazarow as they navigate the defining technology and finance questions of the 21st Century. From bank collapses in Silicon Valley to crises on Wall Street, people have good reason to question whether or not unending technological change is really a positive force on society. The Pnyx tackles this question head on. From ESG and crypto to remote work and A.I., we assemble leading voices in the technology, venture, and fintech spaces and debate one fundamental question: is this innovation “good” for the world?
