This is the second largest financing round for a FinTech company in Europe, making N26 the second largest bank in Germany.

N26 has been a pioneer in the banking world since its seed financing round in 2014, which Earlybird was one of the first supporters of. Since then, not only has the company grown tremendously, but it is also an agent for future change.From Earlybird, the team around Dr. Christian Nagel and Moritz Schollähn has been involved in this project.

The team from Orbit, Dr. Simon Schachinger, Dr. Philip Mostertz and Philipp Neidel, advised on setting up the growth fund and are honored to be working with the colleagues from Earlybird on this exciting and promising venture.
