Polski startup otrzymał 100 tysięcy USD dofinansowania z USA

PAP, 13-09-2017

Polska firma technologiczna Billon, odpowiedzialna za system natychmiastowych płatności wykorzystujący technologię rozproszonego rejestru, otrzyma 100 tysięcy dolarów z amerykańskiego funduszu dla startupów Fintech 71.

Środki będą przeznaczone na rozwój rozwiązań w USA.

• Polska firma chce pokazać się w USA.

• Billon jest jedyną polską firmą, która zakwalifikowała się do programu.

• Wcześniej startup uzyskał również 2 mln euro w ramach programu KE Horyzont 2020.

Oprócz dofinansowania nagrodą dla startupu jest udział w nadzorowanym przez Accenture programie akceleracyjnym, w ramach którego przedstawiciele Billona spędzą 10 tygodni w Columbus w stanie Ohio, gdzie będą pracować z mentorami z firm Visa, Mastercard, Prudential i Santander.

W USA Billon spotka się również z ponad 20 amerykańskimi funduszami inwestycyjnymi oraz firmami FMCG i ubezpieczeniowymi zainteresowanymi wdrożeniem rozwiązań startupu.

„Stany Zjednoczone to rynek, na którym wciąż dominują płatności gotówką i czekami. Jedziemy do USA, żeby przedstawić bankom technologię pozwalającą na podjęcie skutecznej walki o płatności cyfrowe. Rozwiązania Billon sprawiają, że cyfrowe transakcje stają się opłacalne nawet dla najmniejszych kwot. Fintech 71 to idealny partner do zwiększenia widoczności naszych rozwiązań w USA” - podał w komunikacie prasowym David Putts, dyrektor zarządzający rozwojem międzynarodowym Billona.

Sprawdzona technologia

Jesienią na polskim rynku ma ruszyć platforma e-commerce korzystająca z technologii Billon do obsługi sklepów internetowych i przesyłania indywidualnych dotacji przeznaczonych dla streamerów, blogerów i fundacji.

Do korzystania z platformy nie będzie potrzebne konto bankowe ani karta płatnicza.

Z tej samej technologii korzysta już Philip Morris International, wypłacający za jej pomocą nagrody motywacyjne.

„Przewagą naszych rozwiązań jest szybkość ich wdrożenia. Banki, firmy czy sklepy internetowe mogą zacząć używać technologii Billon do przesyłania wypłat i płatności online w ciągu zaledwie kilku dni. Liczę, że w USA, podobnie jak w Polsce i Wielkiej Brytanii, Billon zintegruje się z bankomatami i punktami stacjonarnymi, dzięki czemu wszędzie będzie można wygodnie wpłacić i wypłacić pieniądze” - powiedział Andrzej Horoszczak, założyciel i prezes Billon.

Billon z biurami w Warszawie i Londynie to firma technologiczna odpowiedzialna za system natychmiastowych płatności oparty na zaawansowanej kryptografii oraz technologii rozproszonego rejestru (DLT).

Firma zastrzega, że ma licencję FCA na wydawanie pieniądza elektronicznego w Wielkiej Brytanii, a jej rozwiązanie obsługuje waluty narodowe i jest zgodne z regulacjami finansowymi
.

Fintech 71 tworzony przez firmy z Ohio w USA to akcelerator non profit dla startupów rozwijających usługi finansowe realizowane za pośrednictwem internetu.

Celem akceleratora jest rozwój przedsiębiorczości i promowanie Ohio wśród firm fintechowych oraz wprowadzanie innowacyjnych rozwiązań w firmach z sektora usług finansowych i tych z list Fortune 500 i Fortune 1000.
