Episode 13: Ben Milne, Dwolla

Noah Labhart @nlabhart

Ben Milne grew up in a small town, and has had a pretty normal life. Raising a family, riding a stationary bike and funding startups through selling music gear, he has been in the tech world for a good while. His second startup started as a consumer product that you downloaded to move money between banks… without using credit cards or paying hefty fees. What he discovered was the thing they were best at was payment processing infrastructure… So he changed his business to focus on being a high performing, white label solution for enabling others to process ACH payments – and started phase two of his company, known as Dwolla.
