Jak naši spolupráci vnímají partneři?

Our team

Patrik Nový
DIRECTOR


"Banks and fintechs are natural allies more than competitors. We want alliances that benefit everyone – banks, fintechs and, most of all, clients."

Jiří Přibyl

"It’s the same as in nature. Those who ultimately survive on the market are not the biggest or strongest but are those most open to change."

How can we get started?

What if we're not exactly fintech?

Doesn't matter. We're looking for any ideas that can help us to provide some extra benefit to our customers, like automatic scanning of their invoices or biometric identity verification when they open a new account.

What's the process in getting to a deal?

First of all, get in touch with Tomáš using the contact form below. Tomáš will set up an appointment with you, and together you can discuss possibilities for collaboration. If you find common ground, Tomáš will work with you to prepare your presentation for our innovation board.

Do you accept early stage start-ups?

All projects are evaluated individually, and we believe every great idea deserves a closer look. Get in touch even if you're still at the beginning and your product is just being prepared.

What will happen if we close a deal?

One of our colleagues will become part of your team and she or he will be your direct connection to the parent company KB. We’ll develop our project together, including its implementation and introducing it to KB’s clients.

Contact

You know quite a bit about us now, but we don’t know anything about you yet. Please prepare some basic information about your project and send it to Tomáš, who is working with all new partners. 

Tomáš will review your presentation, then get in touch with you to arrange an introductory meeting.
