拉脱维亚Fintech创企Mintos成功融资500万欧元

昨日,总部位于拉脱维亚的金融科技公司Mintos宣布获得500万欧元融资,资金来源为风投公司Grumpy Investments,后者以科技公司为主要投资目标。

该公司将主要利用这笔资金开发IBAN账户和借记卡产品。

该公司表示,除了原有的全球借贷市场服务外,拥有个人IBAN账户和借记卡还能拓展其用户能够享受的服务范围,比如通过IBAN账户进行全球首付款、进行网上交易或者通过ATM机取款等等。

目前,Mintos已经向监管机构申请了电子货币机构牌照,并将根据欧洲PSD2法规保护投资者权益。

Mintos总部位于拉脱维亚,共有60多名员工,分别在波兰华沙和墨西哥的墨西哥城设有办事处。

截止目前,该公司已经为来自71个国家的8.7万名投资者提供了服务,累计促成贷款10亿多欧元。未来,该公司还计划进一步拓展国际市场。

 

 

Mintos, a Latvia-based financial technology company, has raised 5 million euros in funding which it will use to provide its clients with personal IBAN accounts and debit cards, the company announced November 14.

"Mintos will be magnifying its role in the financial services sector by adding personal IBAN accounts and debit cards to its established global lending marketplace in the near future. The IBAN personal accounts will give investors the ability to make and receive payments from around the world, including receiving a salary directly to their Mintos account. Meanwhile, the Mintos card will allow investors to make transactions around the world or online and withdraw money at ATMs," the company said.

The company has applied to receive suitable certification to do this from the regulatory authorities and as an Electronic Money Institution, Mintos will protect money held by investors under the European PSD2 legislation.

Martins Sulte, Mintos CEO and co-founder said: “Providing customers with a personal IBAN account and debit card will mark a major leap in our services and significantly improve the user experience. Soon, everybody with their own IBAN accounts will be able to give the account details to their friends, companies or customers to get paid, to pay using a debit card, and to continue using Mintos for investing in loans around the globe.”

The fintech startup has a customer base of 87 000 investors from 71 different countries, with plans to open doors to more users in additional locations.  The company has already facilitated more than 1 billion euros in investments in loans through its marketplace.

Mintos has a team of 60 employees at its headquarters in Riga, Latvia, with representative offices in Warsaw, Poland and Mexico City, Mexico.

The new funding comes from the anticlimactically-named "Grumpy Investments" (previously known by the even more painful name of "Skillion Ventures"), a Riga based venture capital firm that is focused on investing in technology companies.

LSM recently met up with Mintos as part of our series focusing on Latvia's exporting companies.
