Holvi, recognised by Wired UK as one of Europe’s hottest fintech startups, today announces its mobile app on iOS and Android.
From the beginning, Holvi set out to create an engaging and more personal way to manage business finances for the new generation of Makers and Doers — entrepreneurs, self-employed and microbusinesses — a creative force of 40 million in Europe. We designed desktop first to bring small business owners unique capabilities that distinguish Holvi from a traditional bank account.
Today, we’re proud to announce the Holvi app on iOS and Android. Holvi is now more accessible than ever to entrepreneurs who want to decide how, when and where they manage their businesses’ finances. All of Holvi’s useful features integrated into a current account for small businesses, such as online store, invoicing tool, expense claims and reports, can now be used straight from the app.
“Within the last six months, we have shipped many new features our customers have requested. Releasing the mobile apps is a natural next step before we continue working on the highly anticipated Holvi Business debit card, which we will be launching this autumn,” says Johan Lorenzen, CEO of Holvi.
Holvi’s primary target group is within the segment of digitally native Millennials. Millennials have already changed the rules of the banking game, as they expect to be able to bank whenever and wherever they go. This resulted in a rapid growth of mobile banking within the last year: 800 million mobile users used their devices for banking purposes in 2014, according to the Juniper Research report. The same report predicts the number of mobile banking users will exceed 1.75 billion by 2019. The industry is, indeed, going through a major shift and we at Holvi are working hard to make our vision of the open banking ecosystem for small businesses a reality.
