finbyte is here to accelerate future-minded companies

Last week at the finleap fintech summit in Berlin, we finalized an exciting new cooperation between Commencis and finleap. We are pleased to announce the launch of a new joint venture, finbyte, a software development services company based in Berlin.

Commencis is an award-winning technology company helping leading brands grow and scale in digital, powered by its big data, analytics and cloud products. The company was founded in 2018 by Fatih and Firat Isbecer, who also founded software company Pozitron, which in 2014 was acquired by UK-based Monitise plc in the largest B2B software acquisition completed in Turkey at that point in time.

finleap is Europe’s leading fintech ecosystem providing fintech SaaS solutions to a range of enterprises and building stand-alone fintech companies. Since 2014, finleap has developed 17 ventures and added others by acquisition to create a thriving ecosystem.

Commencis’ strong reputation and extensive industry experience will help finleap and other fintechs of the ecosystem accelerate their growth by providing talented, world class developer talent to them. “I believe that finbyte will become a significant tech hub in Europe in a very short period of time, contributing to both finleap’s ecosystem and other fintech companies in Europe.” said Ramin Niroumand, Founder and CEO of finleap.

The new joint venture will be headed by Anil Can Baykal, finleap’s former Director of Technology, who brings many years of experience in fintech, software engineering and technology. “It is great to be a part of this exciting new chapter with two strong companies and I am really looking forward to empowering fintech companies to thrive in the era of digital disruption. For finbyte developers, this is a great opportunity to develop state-of-the-art technology and contribute to innovative projects that will help reshape the future of finance for the next generation.”

Ramin is confident that the new joint venture will be a success in driving growth in the finleap ecosystem and the European fintech market. “Great talent is the backbone of pioneering companies. We are looking forward to working together and building a strong relationship with Commencis as a partner to the ecosystem.”
