Speaking on the investment, said Prajit Nanu, Nium’s Co-founder and CEO said, “We started Nium with the humble goal of taking out regional complexity in cross-border payments.

Revenues grew by more than 280 percent year-over-year. With revenues split almost equally across EMEA and APAC, Nium will use funds from this round to accelerate growth in the United States and Latin America.
