Digital bank Penta today announced that after only 18 months of operation it has acquired over 10,000 business customers, as its customer base continues to grow at pace.
User numbers have increased over 200% since the company's last fundraise just two months ago.
A transparent, community-driven approach and active commitment to world-leading customer service has helped Penta win favour of the German business community since launching back in early 2017.
Penta focuses on small businesses with 2-50 employees and serves larger customers like CleverShuttle and AirHelp who have 500+ employees.
Penta CEO Marko Wenthin said,
"Reaching 10,000 business is a huge endorsement for the product we’re offering and the customer’s we’re serving. We're grateful to have such brilliant and passionate team who are going the extra mile to help serve our customers.”
In addition to being able to open a business bank account online in minutes, Penta’s customers can also issue multiple MasterCards to their team for easy expense management.

That’s why we’re offering the tools like Team Management that can help you get business banking done in a fraction of the time. We want to help businesses owners spend less time banking and more time focusing on their business.” said Wenthin.
