First genuine banking platform for the digital economy starts in Berlin
Fintech company builder FinLeap has created the first global banking platform with a full banking license. FinLeap, an idea generator and incubator of innovative fintech start-ups, brought the team of entrepreneurs together, provided the necessary seed funding, and provided intensive support during the development phase.
solarisBank is aiming to become a key part of the financial system: “FinLeap wants to use technology and software to create lasting change in the financial system. solarisBank´s DNA is 100% technology-focused, while its partnership-centered approach provides many different industries with the opportunity to develop individual banking solutions in a more convenient way. We are reshaping finance”, says Ramin Niroumand, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of FinLeap.
solarisBank offers digital companies a modular-based banking toolkit to develop modern financial services for their clients. The services offered by solarisBank include account – and transaction services, compliance – and trust solutions, working capital financing, and online loans.
“We are confident that most major Internet companies will want digital banking solutions that expand their product range and offer it within a challenging regulatory environment. We haven’t seen a bank that offers a technology platform like ours and can partners with so many different kinds companies and business models.
A completely modular digital banking architecture is the gap we are adressing. solarisBank wants to set a new international standard with theirplatform”, says Jan Beckers, serial entrepreneur, chairman of FinLeap and chairman of the supervisory board solarisBank. “Banking as a Platform (BaaP) is trully ‘B2B2C’ allowing entrepreneurs from a broad range of industries to concentrate on their core business. Both companies and end-customers will profit”, says Jan Beckers.
Crucial for the founding of solarisBank was the incredible team brought together by FinLeap. “The German Banking Regulator ‘BaFin’ expects flawless quality”, says Ramin Niroumand. The team did not rely on external consultants but placed banking expertise directly into the team: “We had to find the needle in the haystack: bankers with years of experience who are still entrepreneurs at heart”, says FinLeap Partner, Ramin Niroumand.
