London-based financial powerhouse app Curve secured £58M (roughly €67M) in a Series C extension round on Thursday, bringing its Series C funding to over £133M.
Britannia, IDC Ventures, Cercano Management, Cohen Circle, Outward VC, and other stockholders participated in the extension.
Curve plans to utilize the capital to improve customer experience, expand Flex products, and form new collaborations.
The UK fintech business has raised £208M in equity investment and reached millions of users worldwide with its product and unique relationships with Samsung, Mastercard, Huawei, Swatch, and other top brands.
“We are extremely pleased with the interest we received in our Series C extension round and the support we received from our existing shareholders,” says Curve founder and CEO Shachar Bialick.
It shows our team’s performance, product strength, and business overall. As with each raise, this latest one requires our shareholders and customers to execute effectively to grow a great product and business. Investors, partners, and customers naturally gravitate toward Curve’s unique, user-friendly, and innovative product. With this extra funding, we hope to help more people become financially independent, says Bialick.
