Bitpanda needs no introduction but for those who have been sleeping under a rock in 2021, we got you! Bitpanda was created in 2014 by Eric Demuth, Paul Klanschek, and Christian Trummer. As mentioned in the founder talk they are now active in 7 countries & have now officially grown from 200 to 700 in the Viennese office in one year. In 2021 they also received their new status of being the first unicorn in Austria, with an insane fundraising round. – WOW, massive win for the Austrian ecosystem!!!

Their tech company serves more than 3 million customers, their mission is to give everyone more access and greater control over their financial future, where it should be on their terms, not dependent on their financial means. They have provided us with a safe, easy & accessible investment platform made for all. Open 24/7 and with no barriers. They also have a corporation with Visa so the sky is the limit! 


They want to be the number one investment platform in Europe & beyond, and even though there have been many things in the way (boring laws & regulations) Eric shares, we don’t accept a ‘no’ unless it’s 100% factually impossible. I guess we can all see where this determination and fearlessness has made them who and where they are today.

They are always looking for new heroes to join their army of passionate team members! Curious? Check out their job positions here.
