Thanks to this flexible leasing, rental, and credit model, businesses can trial different equipment to see what best suits their needs, better react to market shifts, and find more cost-effective solutions tailored to them.

Brite Payments is a Swedish instant payments startup offering smarter, faster, and more financially sustainable ways for payments and payouts thanks to open banking.

It is truly an honor to be chosen by Money20/20 Europe, which has established itself at the center of the European fintech ecosystem, to share our vision for payments and highlight the enormous potential of our out-of-the-box instant payments solution. The regulatory and macroeconomic environment in 2024 is a major catalyst for the growth of Pay by Bank payments. Boosted by fresh funding in 2023, we have now made that crucial step from start-up to scale-up, placing us at the forefront of the movement,” said Lena Hackelöer, Founder & CEO, Brite Payments.

 

Kore Labs is a UK-based, award-winning RegTech startup digitizing financial product management to reduce regulatory risks, costs, and time to market for financial products.

NALA is an international money transfer app enabling individuals (nala.com) and businesses (rafiki.com) in the EU, US, and the UK to send money to 11 countries in Africa. Payments to Africa are significantly more expensive than payments to any other continent; NALA was built to reduce those fees through fast, reliable, and affordable cross-border payments. NALA has grown 29x in the past 20 months. Earlier this year, NALA turned profitable and achieved 10X revenue growth in the past 12 months. Their team grew from 7 to nearly 100 in this same time period.

“It’s a great opportunity to share the incredible growth story of Africa, the fastest-growing payment region in the world. Africa’s population is set to grow from 1.2 billion to 2.5 billion, and with 1 in 6 people on the planet projected to be African by 2050, this makes the continent the world’s largest global workforce. Yet, the payments infrastructure in Africa is only 1% built and the opportunity to build the technological infrastructure for Africa’s economic revolution remains largely untapped. This limits global companies like Uber, Netflix and Amazon from operating in the region. At NALA, we’ve made it our mission to build payments for the Next Billion and we’re excited to supercharge this journey with Money20/20.” said Benjamin Fernandes, Founder and CEO of NALA.

 

Money20/20’s Startup Media Session was designed as part of its goal to support startups sitting at the intersection of finance and technology. Last year’s winners included Net Purpose, Clima Cash, Eljun, GoKind, KYP, Zing, and Conduit, among others. To learn more about this year’s featured startups, please visit: https://www.money2020.com/
