And the news made it to the first page of Bloomberg

Indeed, only a few hundred companies worldwide can boast a valuation of $1 billion or above while remaining private. As such, we are now joining the likes of Airbnb, SpaceX, WeWork, or Coinbase…
How did we get there
Our funding consists mostly of private investors. This gave us the time to build the best technology platform in the financial industry.
“Venture capital and private equity funds tend to have less patience. They get nervous when it takes longer for a startup to earn money” — Martin Saidler
We started our story in 2014 and since then, we have been enabling our users to manage all their bank accounts under a single application, and apply for financial products such as bank accounts, credit cards, loans and insurances directly within the app.

Looking back we are extremely proud of our achievements. But the we are even more excited with what lies ahead.
