We're changing the world of finance

We provide funding to fintechs and assist in their development and rapid growth. We also build our own fintechs from scratch. We combine the spirit of start-ups with the power of a global company, Société Générale.

Yet, we are a part of KB group

KB SmartSolutions is a subsidiary of Komerční banka. We’re blending the best of fintechs and traditional bank in order to build  financial services of the future. We believe in "client first", but also in "money makes the world go round".

What we offer

Technology

We'll provide you with needed infrastructure, including our API.We’ll work with you to test your new technologies and services. What’s more, you’ll be able to verify and fine-tune the functionality of your products and services using real data.

Teamwork

We can assist and advise you all along the way. We will quickly test how the market responds to your ideas. If the feedback is positive, we’ll roll up our sleeves and together we’ll do whatever it takes to reach your goals.

2.4+ MILLION CUSTOMERS

We’re able to address 2.4 million customers in the Czech Republic who are accustomed to traditional financial services delivered with premium care. Because we are also a part of the Societé Generále group, we could reach even millions more customers on four continents.

Funding

From initial investment and funding growth to providing working capital, all the way to exit, we’re able to assist you in every stage of our joint project.

Portfolio

We know what are the needs of our clients and thanks to our partnerships with start-ups we are able to fulfill these promptly and flexibly.

How do partners perceive our cooperation?

Our team

Patrik Nový
DIRECTOR


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

Jiří Přibyl
DIRECTOR


"It’s the same as in nature. Those who ultimately survive on the market are not the biggest or strongest ones but 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 provide some extra benefit to our customers, like automatic scanning of their invoices or biometric identity verification when they open a new account.

What can you expect from us?

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 developing your product.

What will happen if we find common ground?

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

We would be glad to get to know more about you and your project and we are certainly going to get in touch with you.
