Number 26

Number26 offers the bank account of the future, tailored for the smartphone: easy to use, available anywhere and working in real-time.

Number26 offers users the most modern bank account. Founded by two Vienna-born entrepreneurs, Valentin Stalf and Maximilian Tayenthal, the Berlin-based Number26 is now active in eight EU countries: Germany, Austria, France, Spain, Ireland, Italy, Slovakia and Greece. Number26 users have access to a fully-secure checking account that can be managed completely on the smartphones. In addition, the Number26 MasterCard can be used all over the world without additional fees, whether it's making purchases or taking out cash at the ATM. Security is ensured through instant push notifications - the user is always informed of all activity on his account. Should the card be lost or stolen, users are able to block it in the app without needing to spend time waiting for a customer service rep on the phone. Number26 has also worked on making improving payment and money transfers. Users are also able to send money wirelessly through our P2P feature Moneybeam, and Cash26 turns retail shops into bank branches, as users can withdraw or deposit cash using their smartphone at more than 6.000 retailers all over Germany. In less than a year, Number26 has signed up more than 90,000 customers while also securing over €12.6 Million in Series A funding, highlighted by the investment from Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures.
