From starting with $100 to doubling in size annually

N5 Now was born 5 years ago in the United States by the hands of seven Argentine founders and directors, including Julián Colombo, an economist and journalist with more than 20 years of experience at Banco Santander.

Since its inception, the company has been entirely financed by clients, willing to advance money in exchange for being the first to obtain the platform that allows the complete digitization of companies in the financial industry.

Last year was key for N5 Now because after being recognized by Microsoft as “Startup of the Year” in Latin America, it had a very significant increase in the number of clients.

According to its CEO, “the initial investment, and somewhat accidental, was $100.” “When we were opening the bank account in the United States, we had to make a deposit of that value to make it operational. And we all looked at each other and laughed because we realized that almost no one had cash at the time, so we rummaged through pockets and purses and finally we put them together”.

Today, with 200 collaborators around the world, offices in 14 countries and a large presence in Latin America, N5 Now pursues two central objectives: the digital transformation of its clients and financial inclusion. “Profitable digitalization, capable of intelligently reducing costs, will allow millions of people to access services today reserved for only half of the Latin American population, for example,” said Colombo.

Its current clients, about 45, range from European multinational banks to public banks in Argentina, from insurers in Switzerland, to means of payment in Arabia, and from Brazilian Fintechs to American investment funds.
