Sweden (mainly driven by Stockholm based start-ups) is one of the leading country in Europe in the Fintech sector. In 2014, reports positioned Stockholm as the 2nd most important city in Europe behind London and before Amsterdam with 15 investments, representing roughly 260 million dollars.
Two big names have contributed to shape the Swedish Fintech ecosystem : Klarna and iZettle. Klarna, a start-up that provides e-commerce payment solutions for merchants and shoppers has raised 125 million dollars from big investment funds such as Sequoia Capital or General Atlantic. iZettle, a mobile payment company, has raised more than 55 million dollars from prestigious investment funds such as Greylock partners, Santander Innoventures or Northzone.
