Sifted has asked seven European fintech founders for their picks of fintech companies to watch for in 2021.
World-class founders aren’t just experts in their own companies. They are also generally credible sources of expertise about their sector and their peers. In this vein, we asked seven of Europe’s top fintech founders (and one from the US) to nominate early-stage startups they’re watching closely this year. The idea is to help bring promising startups out from under the radar, as is tradition at Sifted, and to identify the next batch of fintech leaders across Europe and beyond. For fairness, we asked all founders to declare if their nominations contained any conflict of interests (ie. angel investments or clients).
