Hi fintech enthusiasts!
As you may have noticed this week was particularly hot. Not talking about the skyrocketing temperature that melt ice creams and their consumers on the ground — at least in Paris, the 2 days in London were amazingly cooler — but describing what happened in the European fintech galaxy: 10 deals across the whole continent for a total amount of €153m.
We got some diversity in the spectrum, countries like Belgium, Sweden and Ireland brought some hope about a global warming in the European Fintech ecosystem.
Time to uncoat this hot list:
Let’s take a deeper look on some trendy fintechs:
- Qover: a Belgian insurtech that raised a nice €8.8m Series B with Alven and Portag3 Ventures. Its value proposition is interesting as it offers insurance-as-a-service for online businesses and “gig workers”. Bringing more value to marketplaces, their users and insurers without carrying the risk, this is Qover’s magic trick.
- Mitigram: a platform dedicated to trade finance that aims at easing relation between corporate needing funding and banks seeking investments opportunities. This Swedish fintech raises a warm €9.5m Series B with Sampo Group, a listed, long-term owner of financial services assets, covering both traditional banks and insurance companies.
