We are excited to have Raffi Kayat, co-founder of borderless, as our guest for this Fireside Chat as part of Startup Week Louisville. Make plans to attend this event to learn more about what lead Raffi to be on the founding team of this fast-growing startup and their approach to scaling this global payments company headquartered in Louisville, KY.
Raffi is the co-founder of borderless, a global payments company located in Louisville, KY. He grew up in Lebanon and moved to the US to attend Penn State University where he received a Masters in Architectural Engineering. Raffi has always had a passion for solving problems. He has experienced firsthand the difficulty of moving money across borders as he lived in 3 continents and traveled to over 30 countries.
