Fintech Startup Nummo Closes $1.9 Million Seed Round


Nummo developed a personal financial management platform that helps people better understand and manage their finances. The Zurich-based start-up closed a $1.9M USD oversubscribed round of financing and launched its platform.


The funding was led by an undisclosed group of C-Level executives and entrepreneurs from Europe and the United States. The company previously raised $700,000 USD in a Friends & Family round. The funds will be utilized to further expand operations along with U.S. market penetration, application support efforts and next stage product development. In addition, the company expects to open U.S. headquarters in early 2019.

Nummo aims to capture significant market share in a rapidly expanding category by bringing ease of use, clarity and transparency to consumers who are looking to improve their financial wellness. Nummo is independent of existing financial services companies and does not accept financial incentives, kickbacks or commissions from any financial institutions, investment firms or robo-advisors. Users do have the ability to connect their bank accounts to over 19,000 financial institutions while also being able to access a comprehensive guide to the current robo advisors’ market.
