Synch acted as legal advisor to Open Payments in connection with financing
Synch’s team assisted Swedish fintech startup Open Payments when the company now raises a seed round investment of 1.2 MEUR from Brightly Ventures, Luminar Ventures, and selected angel investors. The capital will be used to grow the team and launch the platform in the Nordic and European market.
Open Payment is first in the Nordic region to offer a genuine PSD2 aggregated platform that on behalf of third-party providers, and with the end customer’s consent, initiates account-to-account payments and retrieves account information and transaction history, all via one single API.
