The CB Insights research team selected the Fintech 250 companies based on several factors including data submitted by each company and their Mosaic Score. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies. Through this evidence-based, statistically-driven approach, the Mosaic Score can help predict a company’s momentum, market health and financial viability.

Last week, the French regulator – ACPR officially validated Lemonway’s €10M Series A round signed on July 13th and led by Breega Capital, with the participation of Speedinvest, a FinTech venture capital fund. This funding will enable the Fintech company to accelerate its hypergrowth pace throughout Europe, particularly in Germany and the United Kingdom where Lemonway recently started its expansion thanks to an enhanced partnership with Barclays Corporate Banking. This Bank-FinTech cooperation will provide an ideal solution for crowdfunding and P2P lending companies with a number of key resources such as electronic banking, operating accounts, client money accounts, SWIFTNet access, faster payments, etc.
