UK card consolidator fintech Curve has raised nearly £6m from 9,565 investors through its first crowdfunding campaign on the Crowdcube platform.

In doing so, the fintech firm is said to break earlier records to become the fastest start-up to reach the £4m figure on Crowdcube. According to media reports, the firm reached the mark within 42 minutes.

In August this year, Curve announced plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign with an aim to raise £1m. The company already raised around six times the target amount.

Eligible investors were allowed to invest between £10 and £25,000 during the crowdfunding.

Curve founder and CEO Shachar Bialick said: “We have been blown away by this record breaking investment from the Curve community and we are delighted to welcome them on board our mission to move banking to the cloud and change the world of finance forever.”

Launched in 2018, Curve allows users to consolidate all their payment cards into one smart card and app.
