Financial technology is, by a long way, the hottest startup sector in Europe in terms of money raised. In 2020 €5.3bn was invested, and 2021 is shaping up to be another record year — €2bn has already been raised.
In 2020, digital payments and neobanks experienced extreme highs (from the Covid-19 market shock to the collapse of Wirecard in the summer) and extreme highs (Klarna raising $650m, Europe’s largest VC round of 2020).
Who will come out on top in 2021? And who will be part of the highly anticipated second wave of neobanks?
