Here at MoneyConf, we like to think that we’ve created a meeting place for the people driving change at finance’s biggest firms and those building the fintech companies of tomorrow. Today on Centre Stage, those two worlds met. Valentin Stalf, Founder and CEO of Number26, joined DBS Bank’s Chief Innovation Officer Neal Cross to chat about what customers want from their bank in 2016. Valentin shared with our attendees news of Number26’s latest funding round. They’ve raised a $40 million Series B, led by Horizons Ventures. They were joined in the round by Battery Ventures, Robert Gentz, David Schneider, and Rubin Ritteralso. Valentin2Valentin on MoneyConf Centre Stage “This financing round brings together some of the world’s leading investors. They provide the substantial financial resources and networks to accelerate our transformation of the banking landscape over the coming years,” said Valentin. We caught up with Valentin backstage right after the announcement. He added that the company believes they are only at the beginning of their journey to bring better mobile banking to millions of customers across Europe, transparently and at much fairer prices. To date, Number26 has acquired more than 200.000 customers across eight European markets in just 17 months since its January 2015 launch. It is thought that this latest round will help accelerate expansion and the integration of new products like savings, investment and credit. Be sure to stop by Number26’s START stand here at MoneyConf – you’ll find them at S102. You might just see the future of finance. IMG_20160621_134347The Number26 booth at MoneyConf
