Fintech company kennek, based in London, receives €11.8 million in seed funding from a group of investors that includes Dutch Founders Fund, AlbionVC, FFVC, Plug & Play Ventures, and Syndicate One.

Kennek's aim is to get rid of the complexity and ineffectiveness that have long prevented the huge non-bank lending market from growing. Lenders had to rely on Excel and a mishmash of disconnected tools and data up to this point.

Xavier De Pauw, Founder of kennek said, “Lenders are really just at the start of the digitalisation journey. kennek is here to help accelerate that journey and provide them with the tools to capitalise on the growth of the non-bank lending space, Until kennek, lenders had to devote countless hours to menial operational tasks and deal with jumbled and hard-coded data – which makes every other part of lending a headache. As former lenders ourselves, we lived and breathed these frustrations, and built kennek to make them a thing of the past.”

The €11.8 million fundraising will be used to speed up kennek's quick growth in its native country and also expand the platform's functionality after it already gained substantial momentum in the UK. After recently securing its first client in continental Europe, kennek also aims to broaden its geographic reach into that region.
