Mobile banking start-up europeone has opened its first office in the German capital Berlin.
The city is an appropriate base for europeone as it will launch its borderless banking app in Germany later this year.
“Berlin is just great. It has a great entrepreneurial energy and is full of mobile Europeans like us,” said europeone CEO Philipp Buschmann.
“We feel very welcome in Berlin. It has one of the leading start-up communities in Europe. We’ve been asked to participate in various talks and workshops and we look forward to contributing.”
The Berlin office gives europeone a new hub for a team which has been operating across countries including Germany, Ukraine, Austria, Romania and the UK. The base will also allow the team to expand with the addition of new staff.
europeone is a financial services start-up set up by Anton Sergeev, a former investment banker, and Philipp Buschmann, a serial entrepreneur.
More than 30 million Europeans live and work abroad in Europe, and a further 70 million need cross-border banking services. Both of these groups are poorly served by traditional banks.
europeone will address this problem by offering customers a mobile-first bank account that works across countries and currencies and can be opened within 10 minutes, using just a smartphone and one official form of ID.
It will also offer joint accounts, with multiple debit cards, that can be used by an entire family, regardless of borders.
