It’s been ANOTHER incredible day for Curve. Today we smashed through our crowdfunding target, setting a record on Crowdcube. Our crowdfunding campaign went live on Crowdcube at 10am. FOUR MINUTES later, we had beaten our £1,000,000 target. 45 minutes after we went live, we had sailed past the £4,000,000 mark, becoming the fastest startup ever to reach this amount Crowdfunding on Crowdcube. In less than 5 hours after we went live, we hit £6,000,000.
|Amount Raised||Time Taken|
|£5,000,000||2 hours 30 minutes|
|£6,000,000||4 hours 41 minutes|
In July, we announced we had secured our Series B funding, taking total investment in Curve to more than £58M ($70M) and valuing the company at a quarter of a billion dollars. This investment marks the beginning of a new era in banking and places us in the top five UK Consumer Fintechs by valuation alongside Transferwise, Starling, Monzo and Revolut.
At Curve, we’re working to revolutionise the world of finance building the first ever Over-The-Top Banking Platform that moves banking to the cloud and simplifies your money.
We’ve witnessed an incredible period of growth both in customer base and team size here at Curve. Since our launch out of Beta in February 2018, we’ve had over 500,000 signups and are on track to welcome our millionth customer by the end of the year. We’ve grown a terrific team to over 160 people with offices in London and Bristol.
We couldn’t have achieved any of this without you. Your support. Your feedback. Your love. You, our valued customers, are the beating heart of Curve for which we are eternally grateful. Although our Series B was oversubscribed, we felt committed to save a small portion of our funding to give you the chance to join our journey and share in our success.
Thank you to all of our customers. We’ve been absolutely blown away by your support. To those of you who are now investors, welcome aboard! It’s going to be a hell of an exciting journey…
