Curve expands to London


South African FinTech company Curve Technology Group has expanded to the UK with the opening of a new office in London.

The company said it has already secured several international clients and its UK presence will make the company's technology available to a new market.

Established in March 2016, the founders of the business have grown Curve into a multi-million-rand company with four offices in two countries in just 15 months.

Fred Baumhardt, CEO of Curve Technology Group, said he aims to create Africa's first multinational software house.

"We are selling South African banking technology to the UK and Germany and bringing that revenue back home. We are ready to compete with global companies, and we are agile and able to deliver more quickly thanks to our iterative development processes. At the same time, we are not a faceless multinational; we have a number of cooperative teams who are managed based on outcomes alone."
