The British all-cards-in-one solution provider Curve is planning to go across the pond in the fall and has taken a clear step towards it with the opening of its first US office.
The office is based in Brooklyn, New York, which is reportedly part of the FinTech companyâ€™s plan to create 184 new jobs in the next five years.
Curve is also planning on investing $17m in research and development in the US.
The news about the opening comes as the UK venture is dealing with a smattering of negative deadlines, accusing the FinTech of altering its own Wikipedia page, fudging its user numbers and not giving crowdfund investors enough financial information before letting them invest.
Curveâ€™s founder hachar Bialick has denied the that only 14% of its users are consistently using the service. Instead he has said that the real number is closer to 80% and he has accused the media of publishing â€œliesâ€ and â€œuntruthsâ€.
In Regards to the crowdfunding campaign, Bialick has responded that it was â€œnot the right thing to provide any informationâ€ as it could give Curveâ€™s competitors an edge. He added that crowdfunding investors should just trust the due diligence carried out by institutional investors.
Curve has said it has always adhered to Wikipedia’s guidelines.
