Freelancer-Friendly Party of Three
Last month, Paris-based Qonto , a challenger bank targeting freelancers and startups, announced it has raised €20m in a Series B round, bringing its total funding to date to ~$36m.
The startup, established in 2016, is now a team of 80, according to LinkedIn, and counts over 25k clients (including French digital health insurer Alan ).
With Qonto, users can order credit cards, manage payments online, transfer funds and enjoy real-time notifications; to name key features. A basic ‘freelancer’ account starts at €9/month (excl. VAT).
Wait, there’s more.
