Number26 closes customer accounts without further explanation
There's been a lot of talking going on about Berlin-based fintech startup Number26. While many customers mention how much they like the service, a lot of those in touch with the support team stated things aren't going well. However, now Number26 canceled a few hundred accounts. The reason for that? Unknown. The company states, each and every cancellation has a reason. Unfortunately, these are not communicated. That raises questions, like if people have used the ATM too often, which costs Number26. Gründerszene has the entire story.
And then he sold his company to Rocket Internet
TechCrunch reported about Christian Sarcuni, former CEO of Italian-based PizzaBo, who sold his business to Rocket Internet for €51 million in 2015. He tells a story of unkept promises and bad surprises. Gründerszene reported about it and spoke with Rocket Internet – they tell a different story.
