appo2We won the price for best company at the Norwegian Investment Forum and got a lot of media and investor attention. Since then mCASH has received more than 50 million NOK in VC funding. Obtained two different licenses from the Financial Supervisory Authorities of Norway and launched as the first mobile payment infrastructure and scheme in Norway.

I would recommend any startup to join NIF to get pitch training, network and seek relations with other startups and investors. I would recommend VC’s to join the event as it’s a great arena to pick up some awesome talent. appo2
