Gocardless – The End of Expensive Online Payments Era!

Founded in January 2011 by Matt Robinson, Tom Blomfield and Hiroki Takeuchi, Gocardless is a fast growing startup dedicated to eliminate expensive or hidden online payment fees.

Gocardless is mainly addressing small business owners that make recurrent payments, of various amounts. Their product enables setting up interbank transfers for customers, with fees ranging from 1%, but never exceeding  £2.

This idea has been appealing not only to customers, but also to investors, Gocardless managing to raise more than $10M in funding, from:

Being featured on BBC, CNN, Wired Magazine, TechCrunch and many more has certainly boosted their reputation and audience, but let us not stray from the actual reason: Fast, easy, cheap services that are int he client’s best advantage.

This is the reason why Gocardless is the No.1 on our Top 15 London Best Startups!

Depop – From Your Smartphone into the Market!

Depop, founded in November 2011, by Simon Beckerman, a Milanese entrepreneur, is a new trending marketplace, accessible from your smartphone.

With the idea and design in his mind, he contacted Riccardo, Maurizio and Vladimiro, founders and partners of H-Farm, the main Italian Startup Accelerator.

The next year was spent next to Venice, creating and polishing the final product! The Goddess of Fortune was on Simon’s side, because more funding started coming soon.

Depop managed to raise more than $2M in funding from various angels, creating stable partnerships and collaborations:

So, if anyone believes that only a few trust this amazing app, you are wrong. Reputation is no longer an issue, because the app has been featured in several reputable websites:

  • “Top 50 Apps” – Elle UK
  • “London’s Top 10 Most Loved Apps” – The Next Web
  • “Top 100 Apps of the Year” – Wired Italy
  • Features in Cool Hunting and Vogue Italy

The constant rise of the Depop app, even if they rank only 3rd place in our London best Startups report, is present in App download stats, which register more that 500,000 until now, the team making a terrific job at maintaining and updating their product constantly in order to complement new tech developments.

We can only wish them good luck in their future endeavors, and, as Simon and Roberto Bonanzinga, from Balderton Capital have dreamed, may they build the new eBay!
