Currencycloud, the Fintech firm that aims to simply and streamline business in a multi-currency environment, has introduced its Bold Academy – which is described as a knowledge-sharing program for Series A-funded startups or early-stage ventures.
The Bold Academy has been launched along with an update to the company brand after a period of steady growth and global expansion efforts.
The Bold Academy is a free-of-cost 12-month program and learning series that has specifically been designed to assist startups with scaling operations by providing strategic support and access to webinars and experienced industry professionals. It will see Currencycloud leverage its own market experience to back other Fintechs that may become more established businesses in the future.
The Bold Academy launch has come with a new company website, fresh strategic positioning and worker training as part of the updated brand.
Todd Latham, Chief Growth Officer at Currencycloud, stated:
“We’ve experienced an exciting period of growth over the past few years, and built up an immense amount of expertise and knowledge within our team. It’s that expertise that has helped launch and support so many of today’s Fintech stars such as Revolut, Starling, and Money Mover. The Bold Academy is just one example of how we’re backing the Fintech community around us. We have revamped our brand to reflect where we are today, and to demonstrate our commitment to sharing knowledge and helping others in the Fintech space.”
The new company branding aims to shine the spotlight on Currencycloud customers and their continued success with the tagline “backing your bold.”
Currencycloud’s services are behind many Fintech unicorns and the new brand positioning embodies how the company will continue to support customers, providing them with the confidence to go even further, faster.
The future-facing update to the brand aims to build on a period of success and growth for the company.
The Fintech firm reports monthly transactions surging to more than $3 billion in 2021. The company has also seen record signings for clients, expanding its user base by a third. It has also expanded its business operations into the APAC area, forming a 50-person team and office in Singapore.
The firm’s management notes that the new brand aims to reflect the company’s maturity and establishment within the United Kingdom’s Fintech space and the wider financial services sector (globally).
Richard Arundel, Chief Evangelist at Currencycloud, remarked:
“Much like our company has scaled-up from our initial start-up days, our brand has also matured since we last updated it in 2016. We have the most amazing clients who are boldly revolutionizing financial services, and we’re proud to be the experts backing them.”
