More than 75,000 people have signed-up for a Curve card, which allows holders to spend from multiple accounts. Business users can get better foreign exchange rates, and track and link expenses to their accounting software, and Curve partners with retailers such as Argos and Boots to provide spending rewards. Chief executive Shachar Bialick, 36, started the firm in 2015 with £1.3m from angel investors, including Ed Wray and Taavet Hinrikus, the co-founders of Betfair and TransferWise respectively. It has since raised a further £8.5m, and plans future funding rounds as it builds more products into its platform. Sales – largely through partnerships with financial services providers – are forecast to hit £4.8m in 2018, up from £600,000 this year.
