For many reasons, being a successful Fintech start-up is difficult. In between developing an innovative business model, creating a superior technical platform/solution, building relationships to potential customers and partners and obtaining the necessary funding, Fintech start-ups need to tackle and navigate the vast jungle of financial regulation to determine whether an authorisation is needed and, if so, what the impact of meeting the regulatory requirements will be on the business. Kromann Reumert is committed to make that process as smooth as possible for Fintech start-ups and contribute to a fruitful dialogue between the start-ups and the regulator.​
