Latvian Fintech Startup Jeff helps people in South-East Asia
Toms Niparts and Reinis Tenis (both Class of 2015) are Co-founders of Jeff App.
Jeff App (founded in 2019) has raised EUR 840K to assist people in South-East Asia.
Toms Niparts, co-founder and CEO of Jeff App: “Jeff helps our users to start building credit history based on their digital footprint, something that is otherwise difficult in a market where 70% of transactions are still done in cash. The more Jeff is used, the more we can learn and innovate with new products. Ultimately, we want to develop Jeff into a financial super app offering a range of products besides loans, such as insurance, mass-adopted digital credit score, and even go beyond finance by adding a range of utility functions.”
