Nikolai Storonsky’s fortune is estimated at more than six billion euros. According to Bloomberg, the 37-year-old is currently the 343rd richest person in the world. Storonsky founded the banking app Revolut in 2015 with developer Vlad Yatsenko.
Similar to the N26, customers create a free account and do money on their smartphone. British FinTech was recently valued at more than €30 billion. For comparison: a nine-year-old N26 is worth about eight billion euros from an investor’s point of view.
At the Finance Forward fintech conference, which took place in the halls of the OMR exhibition in mid-May, CEO Revolut Storonsky and President of N26 Valentin Stalf held hands. Gründerszene met the British fintech founder for an interview shortly thereafter. Storonsky appears in ripped jeans and an unbuttoned linen shirt – an unusual image of a billionaire head.
Nikolai, what is the significance of Germany for the revolution?
