Company: Curve
Position: CEO & Founder

Shachar Bialick

Curve is one of Europe’s most high-profile payments startups, aiming to put payments at the heart of a ‘connected finance’ revolution.

After being named ‘leading payments startup’ at the 2016 EPA Awards, Curve took the sector by storm in 2017 – launching multiple world-first features and being named ‘Best New Customer Facing Innovation’ at the 2017 EPA Awards. Curve’s pioneering platform aggregates and connects existing payments infrastructure to consumers in a simple, secure way that raises the bar for the industry as a whole.

This year Curve has also won at WIRED Money2017 and Paris FinTech Forum, been named one of the world’s most disruptive brands by Marketing Week, featured in the Sunday Times TechTrack 100, joined Tech City UK’s ‘Upscale’ programme, and been included in Europe’s Fintech 50.

Shachar, Curve’s founder and CEO, would love the opportunity to join the Advisory Board in order to share his learnings on existing payments sector challenges, offer his insights on how we can build a more profitable and sustainable ecosystem for the future, and leverage his network to spread the word about the work which the EPA is doing.
