Stefano Vaccino

Founder & CEO


Before founding Yapily, Stefano was a trader on the floor of Goldman Sachs during the 2008 financial crash. He experienced first-hand what can happen when the financial system is closed and unjust. Fast forward to 2017, and after attending an Open Banking seminar, he founded Yapily on the simple yet firm belief that open data access is the answer to creating transparency that will lead to fairer financial services for everyone.

Stefano is the driving force behind Yapily’s mission: to enable better and more accessible financial services for everyone through open finance, creating a global open economy that works for everyone. With a focus on unrivalled quality and connectivity for open banking, he is passionate about building great products to drive financial inclusion. He studied Engineering at Politecnico di Torino (Italy), INPG (France), EPFL (Switzerland) and MIT (USA).
