An opinionated review of the fintech/insurtech/regtech deals, in Europe, week by week

Dear Fintech Folks,

Once again we are here to serve our super fresh list of fintech and insurtech deals.

Here is another busy week with various deals origins : France, Sweden, Germany, Czech Republic and a rather traditional UK lead!

But it’s also time for diversity : 3 of the 8 fintechs that raised capital this week are in banktech, 2 in regtech and then we have unique samples of payment, insurtech and wealth management companies.

Let’s not wait anymore and have a look at our WEEKLY LIST :

Made with ❤ by BlackFin Tech team

This week on show :

Twisto : This Czech buy-now-pay-later app just raised a € 14m Series B lead by ING Ventures and Finch Capital to fund its european expansion. Launched in 2013, the company claims 500 000 customers thanks to its unique scoring engine that eases payment and short term credit.

Pixpay : This French neobank for teenagers just raised an impressing € 3m euros seed round. Co-founded this year by Benoît Grassin — who previously sold MonDocteur to Doctolib in 2018 — Pixpay attracted some famous business angels/founders of the French tech ecosystem such as Alexandre Prot (Qonto) and Jean-Charles Samuelian (Alan). Finger crossed for this ambitious startup!

Applause for this week announcements and brave founders!

Our kudos to all the successful ventures of this week!

BlackFin Tech team, where have you been the past week? Stockholm, Amsterdam, Lyon,… …and where will you be this one? London for Global Regtech Summit as well as paris for the Willa Women in Fintech jury and VivaTechnology (of course!).
