While still at university, Roland founded one of Hungary’s first B2B FinTech companies with three high school friends. Over the next 18 years, Roland managed to grow IND Group from a “garage company” to a leading international digital banking software solutions vendor with nine offices and over 250 employees. Following a successful exit to Vista Equity Partners led Finastra (FKA Misys) in 2014, Roland has been a keen investor in European FinTech startups. He also advises and mentors prominent acceleration and incubation programs. Roland holds a BA in Business Administration from Euro-Business-College in Munich. Outside of work Roland enjoys travelling with his family to his ancestral homeland in the Zemplén Mountains in North-East Hungary. Here he cultivates several estates in the UNESCO world heritage site of Tokaj-Hegyalja with its centuries old tradition of naturally sweet white wines and in Gönc with his Pálinka distillery built on family estates producing fruit brandies.
