The Banxware Story

FinTech Podcast #281

Sometimes even old hands dare to try something new –  also Miriam Wohlfarth, who was THE face of Ratepay for many years, and Jens Röhrborn, also no stranger to the scene, have joined forces with two other founders, Fabian Heiß and Aurel Stenzel, and launched Banxware. There are already rumours in the scene that this could be one of the most exciting new start-ups in 2020.

The company grants loans to platform traders. Actually, Banxware should have started much earlier, “because the demand is great, I know that from many inquiries at Ratepay,” says Wohlfarth, but like many, the Covid-19 pandemic has upset the founders’ schedule.

But it was above all the Wirecard bankruptcy that delayed the start. You can find out why this development even turned into a positive one for Banxware in the end, what underwear has to do with the naming and how the risk assessment works in Podcast #281.
