In June 2019 we established an agreement with the new and exciting start-up: Snoop! We spoke to co-founder & CCO, Scott Mowbray, to find out more about Snoop’s plans to help consumers find ways to spend, save and live smarter using universally accessible technology.
Tell us a bit about your background in your chosen industry?
We’re a team that’s worked together for over 20 years, building game-changing businesses (Virgin Money and the Virgin One account) that deliver real value to consumers. We’re currently assembling a core team – balancing financial, marketing and operations experience, with extensive digital development and technology skills to build, launch and scale Snoop.
"Did you know that consumers lose £12 billion every year by being loyal to big business?"
How did your company start?
With a desire from a like-minded group of people to build something fantastic for consumers. We started the business in March 2019 and are working flat out to get fully launched to the general public in the first half of 2020.
What does your company do?
Did you know that consumers lose £12 billion every year by being loyal to big business?
Well Snoop is a fintech start-up that aims to put that £12 billion back in consumers’ pockets by showing them how to save money at the places they already spend, help them avoid being ripped off by poor deals and lower their bills through effortless switching.
Powered by Open Banking, Snoop will harness technology like artificial intelligence and machine learning to put consumers in the driving seat and help everyone spend, save and live smarter.
What has been your biggest success in business and why?
Building Virgin Money from a small start-up in Norwich 25 years ago to become one of the most significant challenger banks in the UK. We plan to do the same, and much more, with Snoop!
Why did you choose our offices at Prince of Wales Road, Norwich?
The professionalism and quality of service from Exeid has been second to none. And the facilities and logistics work brilliantly well for the team!
