Operating in the Philippines and Thailand, Coins‘ mission is to increase financial inclusion by delivering financial services directly to people through their mobile phones.
Prior to coins.ph, Ron was a founding partner at Innovation Endeavors, an early stage venture capital fund backed by Eric Schmidt.
