Congratulations to coparion crypto portfolio companies and their outstanding teams of Finoa and Nuri on making it into Sifted's 2021 Breakout Fintechs to watch in Europe!


It’s been a big six months for European fintech.

A dozen new financial unicorns have joined the stable, funding has reached record-breaking levels, and a wealth of IPOs are being lined up.

So it’s time we updated our Europe-famous (soon to be world-famous) fintech ranking, which lists the most exciting financial startups in town.

We’ve cleaned up the data (courtesy of Dealroom), removed the dead weights and also welcomed several newbies onto the list.

35 new fintechs have ascended the ranks this year. The criteria for selection extended to those who, over the past 12 months, announced a notable Series A and B round*; or saw strong growth numbers or a healthy new valuation; or led an ‘up-and-coming’ sub-sector.
