As a dedicated mobile bank, we, here at FerratumBank, created our products to help break down the borders and provide banking tools which enable you to say yes to life more often.

Inside many people there is a nagging feeling of another life waiting to be lived – the life they are meant to live. At FerratumBank, we aim to bridge the gap between the life people dream and the life people lead.

Creating Opportunity

You see, we know money can help open doors and create opportunities. That's why we recently ran a contest called Outdo Yourself.

Created to encourage you to put your ideas into action and do the things in life that you've perhaps previously put off doing, to enter the Outdo Yourself contest, we asked you what your dream or goal was and then asked us to send us a video pitch about why it's so dear to you.

Maybe it was a goal or dream you'd always wanted to start or maybe something you'd already started but didn't have the time or the means to make it possible. To reward entrants, we offered a generous grant along with the mentorship needed to help make their dream a reality.

More Momentum

We're excited to report that we received so many inspiring videos - 133 videos from 18 countries to be exact. From those submissions, we then had the challenge of selecting just three winners.

Soon after we selected our winners, we realised that there was so much momentum and that the videos deserved more exposure.

Affecting and Effecting Others

The positive affect of pursuing goals that are meaningful to us can be felt and seen through every part of our lives and can positively affect those around us. This is clear from the video pitch we received from Noora, an extremely talented and passionate make-up and effects artist from Finland.

As documented in her video, Noora is fascinated with movie creatures and has been drawing creatures her whole life. She worked on the first Finnish superhero film Rendel while also working on creating life-size puppets for a music video.

Her passions for her craft took her to Canada where she studied Make-up Design for Film and Television at the world-renowned Vancouver Film School.

Noora's dream is to run her own make-up and effects workshop. Tools and materials are, however, very expensive and she presented her video pitch in hope to receive help through our Outdo Yourself campaign.

When we pursue our goals with passion and determination, we are unstoppable. We, here at FerratumBank, have no doubt that Noora is destined for big things and we wish her well with her pursuits!

Stay tuned for more inspiring stories from Outdo Yourself next month.
