Mambu, creator of a cloud-based SaaS banking platform, raised $8.7 million (€8 million) this week. Combined with the $1.5 million the company picked up in February 2013, its funding now tops $10.6 million.
The round was led by Acton Capital Partners and CommerzVentures; existing investors also contributed.
Mambu CEO Eugene Danilkis speaks to the purpose of the new investment:
We are building out the product and onboarding customers in multiple geographies. We are excited that this new capital will allow us to deploy faster, and to better support our global client base as we continue to enable the next generation of banking service providers.
In more specific terms, Mambu plans to use the funds to:
- Expand its commercial team
- Increase investment into the platform
- Open additional offices to support growth in Asia and the Americas
The Berlin-based company showcased its core banking application at FinovateAsia 2013, highlighting its holistic approach that helps banks of any size create and service loan and deposit products. Founded in 2011, Mambu seeks to replace core banking by offering faster access to technology at a lower cost.
Over the past year, Mambu has added 30+ new customers and has added support for P2P and SME lending methods.
