This edition of Startup Showcase spotlights Bucharest-based startup, FINQware. Positioned at the vanguard of the fintech revolution, FINQware is pioneering the utilization of open banking for businesses, offering a robust enterprise-class financial data platform. This groundbreaking solution enables mid-sized companies to leverage open banking, unlocking novel opportunities for growth and efficiency.
A Unique API Middleware Platform
At the heart of FINQware’s offerings is its cutting-edge API middleware platform. This innovative system serves as a conduit between businesses—including enterprises, banks, and fintech firms—and the financial data supplied by banks and other providers.
FINQware’s platform utilizes PSD2 APIs from banks, custom data exposure API, and product wrapping APIs on the input side. These input connections, referred to as “skills”, are enriched within the FINQware infrastructure and subsequently exposed to tenants who can then develop front-end applications and services, thereby creating and adding value.
Creating ‘Skills’ for Cross-Border Financial Marketplaces
FINQware’s innovative model of creating “skills” from the digitization of sales origination processes with financial providers also facilitates the development of cross-border financial marketplaces. This includes digital wallets and online e-commerce businesses, providing them with a new revenue stream via commissions on financial product sales.
This process simultaneously benefits banks and financial providers by expanding their distribution coverage and offering a fresh channel for customer acquisition. Consequently, FINQware stands as a win-win solution for all involved parties, fostering symbiotic relationships within the open banking ecosystem.
With its disruptive approach to open banking, FINQware is shaping the future of financial data access for businesses. It has successfully broken down barriers, enabling mid-sized companies to tap into the immense potential of open banking—a sphere previously exclusive to large enterprises.
As FINQware continues to innovate and refine its technology, it is setting new benchmarks in the fintech industry, further demonstrating the transformative power of startups in driving industry evolution.
