Mambu secures €30m funding for SaaS-y surge
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) banking firm Mambu has raised €30 million in its latest funding round led by US-based Bessemer Venture Partners.
The round also had participation from existing investors Acton Capital, CommerzVentures, Point Nine Capital and Runa Capital.
The news is not a surprise to FinTech Futures, because at the start of this month – and in an exclusive – Mambu signed a deal to implement its core banking system at Orange Bank‘s new location in Spain.
At that time, Mambu said it had recently completed a funding round “in the tens of millions” and would provide details soon.
In the latest chapter, Eugene Danilkis, Mambu CEO, says institutions “have to move at the pace of a technology company rather than a traditional bank” and “as a direct result, we have experienced significant growth as these institutions change strategic direction and face new tech-enabled players entering the financial services market”.
Mambu, which launched in 2011, says it has experienced triple-digit growth for four consecutive years as challenger and established banks sign on to implement the platform.
The funding will be used for its commercial teams, and product, platform and services; resulting in a “planned three-fold growth in headcount and six-fold in revenues in the forthcoming years across all regions”.
