This ambitious goal was the vision of Maximilian Tayenthal and Valentin Stalf when they founded their fintech start-up under the name Number 26 in February 2013. Soon, the business run by the dynamic entrepreneurs prospered and became one of the best known fintech companies nationwide. Also, the new company made the established banks and financial institutions nervous. Now, four years later, the company has been renamed N26. It has its own banking license, has more than 300,000 customers and enables international banking in 17 countries worldwide. Nevertheless, expectations of its two company founders are still high. European Business talked to Maximilian Tayenthal about his experiences of the last years and the future plans for N26.
