Xavier Niel via NJJ Capital

In order to achieve its vision of a Banking-as-a-service platform, iBanFirst raised its first capital in October 2016, with Xavier Niel as the main investor, through its holding company NJJ.
Founder of School 42 and Station F, Xavier Niel is also the first business angel in France with 35 million euros invested in recent years. This list makes him the best representative of the startup ecosystem. NJJ Capital is one of its personal holding companies, which manages the largest tickets and post-seed phases.
In November 2018, Xavier Niel participated in iBanFirst's second fundraising campaign.

"iBanFirst is only at the beginning of its development and already brings considerable value to its customers. With real-time price transparency, industry-leading features and an impeccable customer experience, we are confident in the company's ability to become the European leader in this market. The founder and his management team are experts in their field and have the ambition to build a reference in financial services for companies with an international activity" explains Bertrand Diard, Venture Partner of Serena.

Breega

Ben Marrel, co-founder of Breega, explains: "Few startups take the full measure of the scope of possibilities offered by the DSP2 regulatory change. As with telecoms and energy in their time, it is now possible to build an incomparable value proposition over banking infrastructure. This is what iBanFirst is developing with its vision of meta-banking for international companies and that's why we are delighted to join the adventure. The common objective of building a European leader makes us all vibrate! »
