Victor Lysenko, CEO and Co-founder of Osome, views the current economic downturn, characterised by fewer job opportunities and high layoff rates, as a prime catalyst for entrepreneurship. He said: “Osome was founded to support and champion the needs of entrepreneurs, to help them see their ideas come to life. Asia's seeing a funding winter, with companies carrying out mass layoff exercises and a much more challenging job environment. This means we're seeing a record number of individuals turning to entrepreneurship. Osome truly believes the current downturn has catalysed more founders and entrepreneurs to realise their dreams of running their own businesses, and that's what we are here for.”

Konstantin Lange, COO and Co-founder, reflected on the past year's challenges and achievements, saying: “2023 has been a challenging year; it was not without its growth pains. We saw a period where customer revenue was growing faster and faster, which forced us to realign ourselves as an organisation to deliver positive experiences to our client partners. All things considered, we're pleased to have emerged from the year bigger, stronger, and better, with a renewed push towards profitability and sustainability. We could not have done this without the trust and support of our customers, team members, and investors who view Osome as a trusted partner to help them grow their businesses.”

Anton Roslov, Chief Technology Officer and Founder, highlighted the role of artificial intelligence in enhancing customer experiences and boosting automation, saying: “Artificial intelligence will increase the and accelerate automation and integration of Osome's services in line with Osome's vision to become entrepreneurs' leading financial operating system. Osome's next growth stage is focused on profitability and operational excellence while continuing to provide high-quality services and innovation to its clients.”

Joerg Ruetschi, recently appointed President & Chief Transformation Officer, emphasised Osome's ongoing commitment to its core mission. He said: “As Osome continues to evolve and expand its reach, the company remains committed to its founding principle: making business operations effortless for entrepreneurs worldwide. With a strong foundation and a clear vision for the future, Osome is set to redefine the standards of financial technology services for SMBs across the globe.”
