Nordigen is excited to announce Nordigen for Startups - a new programme that supports European startups with easier and more affordable access to open banking technologies by offering free access to Nordigen Premium services, valued at €10,000. Developers can already get free-forever access to European open banking data with Nordigen, but data insights help startups extract more meaning from data, allowing them to build innovative solutions in less time. Nordigen for Startups is an initiative designed to help Europe’s rising stars build and launch new applications powered by Nordigen’s API platforms.
“We're excited to see what European startups can do with open banking if cost is no longer an issue,” says Rolands Mesters, CEO and Co-founder of Nordigen. “It's a programme I wish we had when we started building Nordigen.”
