From payments processors and alternative lending firms to automated investment services, fintech startups have become attractive for a number of reasons. In 2014, global investment in financial technology companies tripled, to more than $12 billion. The trend continued in 2015, when $10.49 billion was invested in the first three quarters.
Meniga has been recognized as one of the 8 Emerging Fintech Startups to Watch In 2016 by Inc. magazine & website, a premier publisher for entrepreneurs and business owners. Meniga is in good company along with startups such as Betterment — a New York City-based startup that provides automated investment services and personalized advice, Affirm — a San Francisco based installment loans startup helping users finance large e-commerce purchased which was launched in 2013 by Max Levchin, the high-profile investor and co-founder of PayPal and London based startup Transferwise — a peer-to-peer money wire platform.
Inc. states that while the majority of fintech startups pit themselves directly against banks, a startup based out of Reykjavik, the capital city of Iceland, says that’s precisely who it wants to help. The publisher goes on the say that Meniga licenses its money management software to banks, partnering with 25 of them across Scandinavia and Western Europe to drastically improve their digital banking experience. Georg Ludviksson’s, CEO and co-founder of Meniga, take on the rapidly evolving sector is simple. “The big banks are much less afraid of the banks next door than they are of tech companies”.
