B2Broker Group is pleased to officially announce the launch of its venture fund, B2Broker VC. B2Broker VC is led by a team that is one of the most successful and fast-growing financial technology groups with in-depth expertise in sectors ranging from IT development to capital management. The venture fund will enable the investment in, and nurture of external projects that are of interest such as new fintech startups and payment systems, and will create synergies for the group.
Back in 2017, like many other tech industry giants, B2Broker Group started working on its own internal corporate venture fund. This was focused on the development of a number of specific projects. Since then, the capitalisation of the group's fund has grown steadily and now includes a number of projects in which the company has invested over $15 million so far. This is an exciting project which has enabled the development of a modern financial and technological ecosystem on the basis of the B2Broker group of companies.
Of particular focus is the launch of B2BinPay in 2017, a payment system which has become one of the most modern and technologically progressive platforms in the world, B2BX, a platform for the trading of digital assets which is licenced in the EU, Eqwire, a digital banking service, and last but not least, the group's most expensive and complex project, B2Prime, which is an integrated liquidity provider with licences in different jurisdictions, including Europe and CIS.
With the experience acquired on these internal projects and the business-processes that have been developed, B2Broker VC has also started investing in external projects. One of the most noteworthy of these is the innovative Coinsbuy, a project designed to cater for the growing demand for buying crypto using a credit or debit card. This will be a complementary project to B2Broker's ecosystem.
Throughout this process, B2Broker VC identified the most interesting sectors such as fintech, IT development and automation, as well as startups offering products for the brokerage market.
