London fintech Curve closing in on $10M Series A
Curve, the London fintech startup that offers a platform that lets you consolidate all your bank cards into a single Curve card and manage your money, is on the verge of closing $10 million in Series A funding.
According to sources, the round, which could be announced as soon as this week, is being led by Connect Ventures, with participation from Santander Ventures, the venture arm of Spain-headquartered bank Santander Group.
A number of other investors from the fintech and banking world are also participating, although I haven’t been able to pin down who they are. It is also not clear if this Series A includes an earlier bridge round of approximately $2.5m announced in September.
Curve co-founder and CEO Shachar Bialick declined to comment when asked for confirmation of the startup’s new funding and investors.
Along with Connect Ventures, Curve’s existing investors include Samos Investments, Speedinvest, pre-seed/seed investor Seedcamp, London Co-Investment Fund, TransferWise founder Taavet Hinrikus, Ricky Knox of challenger bank Tandem, Azimo founder Michael Kent, Ed Wray of Betfair, former members of the Google Wallet team, and the founders of Money2020.
