Banking tech company LEVERIS has been selected for not one, but two prestigious lists published by the Financial Times’ Sifted in February 2020.

LEVERIS qualified for inclusion in Sifted’s ‘Top European fintech startups to follow in 2020’ and ‘Top Irish startups to follow in 2020’.

For the ‘top European fintech start-ups’ list, Sifted reporters dived into the data, strategy and challenges behind the most important fintech companies in what Sifted describes as “the hottest start-up sector in Europe in terms of money raised”. It reports that approximately €23 billion of venture capital has flowed into fintechs since 2015.

Sifted chose companies based on fundraising, how quickly they are hiring and how formative they have been to the start-up ecosystems around them.

LEVERIS is in good company. It is listed among European fintech unicorns such as RevolutMonzoN26 and Klarna as well as other fintechs that are shaping the banking and payments industries.

Meanwhile, the ‘top Irish start-ups’ list identifies Irish-found companies that are making a mark in their respective sectors and helping boost the start-up ecosystem in Ireland. 

Almost 23,000 start-ups were founded in Ireland in 2019, according to a report from company intelligence firm CRIF Vision-net. That’s up 1.2 per cent on 2018 – a sign that the current landscape for starting a business in Ireland is positive.

Along with LEVERIS, other exciting Irish companies named include IntercomWeb SummitSweepr and recently launched Manna Drone Delivery.

Responding to the news of being listed, Conor Fennelly, founder and CEO of LEVERIS, commented: 

Sifted is a Financial Times-backed new media site that takes a fresh look at Europe’s start-up and tech world, building a readership of founders, investors, innovators and thinkers.

Sifted’s start-ups lists were compiled in conjunction with dealroom.co, a company focused on discovering and tracking innovative companies before everyone else.
