Foreword
We launched FinTech Forum D-A-CH in July 2013 on a whim. Reading about the FinTech startup scene in the US and nearer
home in the UK, we were wondering how a region with a burgeoning financial services sector and hubs like Frankfurt, Zurich,
Munich and Vienna seems to be known for just a handful of FinTech startups that keep reappearing in the press or at events.
Unlike the US - where New York FinTech startup funding was expected to double in 2013 - or the UK with London as the
FinTech hub, we had no idea (if and) where financial services innovators were taking root in the D-A-CH region. Would we
find them in Berlin, the startup hotspot, or in Frankfurt, Zürich, Munich or Vienna- the power centres of banking and finance?
We took a leap of faith and kicked off our initiative with the intention of bringing together around 20 startups with investors
and banks in a simple first event in Frankfurt in Nov. 2013. We identified and contacted the first set of twenty startup
founders and waited – with bated breath! Within four weeks, we had our first 10 registrations. In the next four weeks we got
to know over 50 startups, and the “network effect” took us beyond the 100 mark by end-October.
Here we present some initial results of our study with brief introductions to the 100 FinTech startups/SMEs we got to know
on the way to our first event. We hope that investors, banks, accelerators, and other FinTech market players will find here an
informal but useful overview of the D-A-CH FinTech landscape, and use it to get to know (and reach out to) each other.
Our thanks to the startups (especially those who participated in our first event, or contributed to our popular “7 Questions
with…” interviews), participating investors, banks, and sponsors (BankITX and Kea Company) for supporting our initiative.
Register for our next event (9th
May 2014 in Frankfurt) or for our weekly newsletter covering the DACH FinTech scene.

About FinTech Forum D-A-CH
FinTech Forum is the first hub for FinTech Startups/SMEs, investors and banks in Germany, Austria and Switzlerland (D-A-CH
in short). An initiative co-founded in July 2013 by Frank Schwab and Samarth Shekhar, the Forum is on a mission to put
more FinTech innovators from the D-A-CH region on the world map. We seek to identify innovators, disruptors and “hidden
champions” in the D-A-CH financial services sector, and bring them together with investors and banks: via our network of
relationships, our online presence (newsletters, expert blogs, Q&As, social media etc.) and events, as well as our custom
advisory, research and business development services.

1. Summary of initial results
We were looking for answers to some basic questions: which type of FinTech startups have been founded, where are they
based, when were they founded, how big are they etc. We made some initial observations from a sample size n=100.
While the Berlin cluster as a startup hotspot came out on top, we saw clusters around financial centres like Frankfurt, Munich
and Zurich following close behind. We used the Google Map Engine to plot a map of these startups (see next page).
The jump in the number of startups after 2008-09 could indicate the frustration with the crisis and the banking system,
triggering founders to go out on their own or try and change the way financial services were being provided.

http://www.FinTechForum.de © TechFluence Consult UG (haftungsbeschränkt) 6
For a region known to be lending- and risk-averse, we found no dearth of crowd-funding, lending and trading startups.
In terms of size (by number of employees), we found around 10% SMEs and the rest almost equally split between small (1
to 10 staff) and medium-size (11 to 50 staff) startups.
Methodology / Remarks
- We use “clusters” to refer to locations within ~50-100 km radius of the cities
- The year of founding was taken from the company website or from their Xing, LinkedIn or TechCrunch profiles
- The “FinTech Type” used for analysis or for the sub-sections below are an approximate classification based on our
assessment of the core service offered– e.g. a thin line separates crowd-funding and peer-to-peer lending firms
- For approximating the company size we used the range provided on their Xing or LinkedIn profile.
- The short descriptions are taken from the company website, “About Us” or public profile. Where only a German
website was available, we have tried our best to provide an approximate translation.
- All analysis is based on publicly available and potentially inaccurate information, to arrive at approximate results as an
academic study and we are not liable for the currentness, correctness or validity of the data.

1st Study of FinTech Startups in Germany, Austria & Switzerland

  • 1. http://www.FinTechForum.de © TechFluence Consult UG (haftungsbeschränkt) 1 FinTech Forum DACH http://www.FinTechForum.de 1st Study of FinTech Startups & Innovators in Germany, Austria and Switzerland 01st Feb. 2014, Frankfurt am Main Sponsors A BankITX and TechFluence initiative
  • 2. http://www.FinTechForum.de © TechFluence Consult UG (haftungsbeschränkt) 2 Foreword We launched FinTech Forum D-A-CH in July 2013 on a whim. Reading about the FinTech startup scene in the US and nearer home in the UK, we were wondering how a region with a burgeoning financial services sector and hubs like Frankfurt, Zurich, Munich and Vienna seems to be known for just a handful of FinTech startups that keep reappearing in the press or at events. Unlike the US - where New York FinTech startup funding was expected to double in 2013 - or the UK with London as the FinTech hub, we had no idea (if and) where financial services innovators were taking root in the D-A-CH region. Would we find them in Berlin, the startup hotspot, or in Frankfurt, Zürich, Munich or Vienna- the power centres of banking and finance? We took a leap of faith and kicked off our initiative with the intention of bringing together around 20 startups with investors and banks in a simple first event in Frankfurt in Nov. 2013. We identified and contacted the first set of twenty startup founders and waited – with bated breath! Within four weeks, we had our first 10 registrations. In the next four weeks we got to know over 50 startups, and the “network effect” took us beyond the 100 mark by end-October. Here we present some initial results of our study with brief introductions to the 100 FinTech startups/SMEs we got to know on the way to our first event. We hope that investors, banks, accelerators, and other FinTech market players will find here an informal but useful overview of the D-A-CH FinTech landscape, and use it to get to know (and reach out to) each other. Our thanks to the startups (especially those who participated in our first event, or contributed to our popular “7 Questions with…” interviews), participating investors, banks, and sponsors (BankITX and Kea Company) for supporting our initiative. Register for our next event (9th May 2014 in Frankfurt) or for our weekly newsletter covering the DACH FinTech scene. Want to be included in our next study?

  • 3. http://www.FinTechForum.de © TechFluence Consult UG (haftungsbeschränkt) 3 Disclaimer This is an informal study prepared purely for academic purposes, using publicly available information, and with no claims to the completeness, correctness, currentness or validity of the data. This is not an exhaustive report, and we are happy to hear from FinTech Startups or SMEs who want to be part of our next study. We are not responsible or liable for any errors, or for any investment decisions made based on the information provided in this document. About FinTech Forum D-A-CH FinTech Forum is the first hub for FinTech Startups/SMEs, investors and banks in Germany, Austria and Switzlerland (D-A-CH in short). An initiative co-founded in July 2013 by Frank Schwab and Samarth Shekhar, the Forum is on a mission to put more FinTech innovators from the D-A-CH region on the world map. We seek to identify innovators, disruptors and “hidden champions” in the D-A-CH financial services sector, and bring them together with investors and banks: via our network of relationships, our online presence (newsletters, expert blogs, Q&As, social media etc.) and events, as well as our custom advisory, research and business development services.

  • 4. http://www.FinTechForum.de © TechFluence Consult UG (haftungsbeschränkt) 4 1. Summary of initial results We were looking for answers to some basic questions: which type of FinTech startups have been founded, where are they based, when were they founded, how big are they etc. We made some initial observations from a sample size n=100. While the Berlin cluster as a startup hotspot came out on top, we saw clusters around financial centres like Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich following close behind. We used the Google Map Engine to plot a map of these startups (see next page). The jump in the number of startups after 2008-09 could indicate the frustration with the crisis and the banking system, triggering founders to go out on their own or try and change the way financial services were being provided. 0 5 10 15 20 25 Split by Location Clusters 0 5 10 15 20 25 Older Y-2008 Y-2009 Y-2010 Y-2011 Y-2012 Y-2013 Split by Year Founded

  • 6. http://www.FinTechForum.de © TechFluence Consult UG (haftungsbeschränkt) 6 For a region known to be lending- and risk-averse, we found no dearth of crowd-funding, lending and trading startups. In terms of size (by number of employees), we found around 10% SMEs and the rest almost equally split between small (1 to 10 staff) and medium-size (11 to 50 staff) startups. Methodology / Remarks - We use “clusters” to refer to locations within ~50-100 km radius of the cities - The year of founding was taken from the company website or from their Xing, LinkedIn or TechCrunch profiles - The “FinTech Type” used for analysis or for the sub-sections below are an approximate classification based on our assessment of the core service offered– e.g. a thin line separates crowd-funding and peer-to-peer lending firms - For approximating the company size we used the range provided on their Xing or LinkedIn profile. - The short descriptions are taken from the company website, “About Us” or public profile. Where only a German website was available, we have tried our best to provide an approximate translation. - All analysis is based on publicly available and potentially inaccurate information, to arrive at approximate results as an academic study and we are not liable for the currentness, correctness or validity of the data. 0 5 10 15 20 25 Banking & Corporate Finance Capital Markets/Trading Crowdfunding/Crowdinvesting Data Analytics Payments Personal Financial Management Security Split by FinTech Type 0 10 20 30 40 50 1 to 10 11 to 50 51 to 200 Split by Size (No. of Staff)
