About Bambora From zero to 600 employees and a global player in just a couple of years.
A clear vision
Bambora’s journey started a few years ago. We were a group of willing entrepreneurs who had realised that conditions were not easy for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) when it came to payment solutions. There were many different vendors and even more interfaces. The reality was far from the simple experience we envisaged. We wanted to make life easier for business owners, regardless of whether they had had their business for three months or 30 years, sold in stores or online. You could say we were obsessed with solving the problem and with simplifying things for SMEs.
Growth for our customers means growth for us
We wanted to build a business where we could achieve growth while allowing our customers to grow their own businesses. To achieve this, we had to make our product offering adaptable based on our customers’ changing needs during their growth journey. We have now developed a unique technology platform that enables e-commerce and physical commerce on the same platform, payments to be made within and across 60 countries, an analysis service that gives our clients insights into their operations in real time and smart financial solutions that help our customers grow their businesses.

The simple customer journey
So we got to work. Right from the start, we had set our sights on building a global business that would look after the needs of all SMEs. As payments are often international, this entailed a lot of travelling around the world to find out which components were needed to simplify the customer journey in many different countries. Our Nordic origin gave us an advantage thanks to the experience we had from one of the world’s most developed regions in the payment industry. Our investors shared our enthusiasm about the idea and decided to support us, and so we began to put the pieces of the jigsaw together. We invested heavily in technology and people, and now two years later, large parts of that jigsaw have been assembled. But the real journey begins now.
