Justin McCarthy

Project UBU co-founder

With 25 years' experience at the intersection of technology and media, I have refocused my energy on the deployment of technologies in the consumer space with the aim of liberating commercial sectors from inefficient and illiberal old world models. I’ve accumulated significant experience in the marketing, media, retail, telecoms, consumer technology and fintech spheres. Project UBU is my main focus at present - a highly ambitious project that aims to marry inclusive capitalism with social needs enabled through cutting edge financial technology.
