“Our vision is to build a platform of connected services around a bank account which would allow business owners to use one platform for all their financial needs. Penta is designed to let business owners save time and money on banking so that they can focus more on their core business.”

The launch of services to Freelancers comes less than two months after Penta raised €18 million through its latest round of funding, which was led by RTP Global with participation from ABN AMRO Ventures, VR-Ventures, finleap, and HV Holtzbrinck Ventures. Penta is planning to use the new funds to further develop its digital platform in order to “enhance the services” for corporate clients, with a strong focus on tech, product, custom service, and marketing.
