James Sene, Chairman – 11Onze, added…
“La Plaça is what makes us unique. It’s an innovative fincom – a fusion of a social network and a fintech to deliver community driven financial services.
La Plaça started as a digital experience that combined social networking with a learning management system (LMS) and has since evolved into a community place for our members to buy products and services.
Moving forward they will also be able to sell their goods and services to other members.”
Dermot O'Shea Founder
