Berlin, 5 March 2020. FinCompare, the Berlin-based FinTech with a focus on SME financing, has successfully extended and completed its Series A financing round. In an A+ round, FinCompare was able to secure an additional EUR 12 million in funding. As such, FinCompare has now successfully raised a Series A totalling EUR 22 million (equaling more than EUR 25 million since company foundation). The investment is led by existing investors such as Speedinvest, ING Ventures and UNIQA Ventures. In addition, international financial investors, including Elevator Ventures of Raiffeisen Bank International AG, and private investors have joined the group.
The successful closing of an extended Series A is the result of a highly successful year 2019: “We have more than doubled growth. We aim to maintain our strong growth momentum, and therefore plan to invest heavily into our team and technology. We are extremely thankful for the strong commitment shown by our current investors and to welcome new international investors to FinCompare. There was strong demand from investors to participate in the round, which was ultimately oversubscribed”, says Stephan Heller, Founder and CEO of FinCompare.
