Here’s a bit of funding news from a new Finovate alum that slipped beneath the radar earlier this year. Open banking and insurance platform NDGIT has raised $4.7 million (€4 million) in new funding. The investment comes courtesy of a Series A round led by Capnamic Ventures and featured participation from PROfounders and existing investors Dieter von Holtzbrinck Ventures and business angels. The funding takes NDGIT’s total capital to $5.8 million.
The Munchen, Germany-based fintech said the additional capital will be used to grow its team and further product development. NDGIT, which stands for “Next Digital Banking”, is the developer of the first API platform for both banking and insurance, and its technology helps banks leverage open banking APIs and PSD2-ready solutions to work and integrate with digital partners. NDGIT includes Swiss bank Hypothekarbank Lenzburg and Germany’s Bank fur Sozialwirtschaft among its bank, fintech, and insurance company clientele.
“In Capnamic we have gained a leading investor with experience in the FinTech and InsurTech sectors,” NDGIT founder and CEO Oliver Dlugosch said in a statement. “In light of the common PSD2 Directive and international Open Banking developments, the investment by PROfounders Capital provides further proof of NDGIT’s European market relevance. With the support of our partners we intend to accelerate our growth and keep on driving NDGIT’s development into a market-leading Open Banking platform in Europe.”
Founded in 2016, NDGIT made its Finovate debut earlier this year at FinovateEurope 2018 where the company demonstrated its Ecosystem Builder solution. Ecosystem Builder is based on NDGIT’s open banking platform and enables banks to build app stores to offer their fintech partner network to their clients. The solution gives FIs an engaging front end that provides an overview of all the apps available via the banking portal, an SSO connection to fintech partners, secure data integration with the bank’s systems, as well as analytics and reporting.
