#136 - Future-proof finances with a purpose, Bastian Krautwald, wajve
Millennials want convenience, like being able to open a bank account in 10 minutes. The GenZ cohort expect convenience and also want a purpose they can relate to. So how well you communicate your purpose is becoming a main differentiator for companies targeting this group. Still, so far very few fintechs have created financial products for the next generation of customers. Bastian Krautwald’s company is one of the few exceptions. While still a student, he founded “deineStudienfinanzierung”, a platform for student loans with David Meyer. It even got them into “Die Höhle der Löwen“ (Germany’s „Shark Tank“). With their new product Wajve, the two founders raised 5 million in seed capital last year. The funding is intended to accelerate the roll-out of the platform for the first customers in Germany before it expands into other European markets.
