It’s been a busy start to 2022 for the team at Karfu.
We are pleased to announce that Karfu has recently been accepted by the FCA into the Green FinTech Challenge! Karfu is one of only 10 firms accepted and one of 5 in the Regulatory Sandbox.
The FCA’s FinTech Challenges allow them to take a more active role in driving innovation in areas where they see clear benefit to UK consumers and markets.
The GFC specifically supports the development and live market testing of innovative new products and services that will aid the transition to a net-zero economy.
We’re also proud to announce that we’ve become a Certified B Corporation and received accreditation from The Planet Mark. For us, these achievements validate our goal of being an honest and impartial company whose aims are to help consumers traverse the world of mobility and create a positive social and environmental impact.
To support our growth, we’ve hired two additional full time staff members in software development and content, with more hires in the pipeline. We’ve also welcomed four new team members we’ve hired through the UK Government’s Kickstart scheme, bringing them onboard to help with marketing, graphic design and sales.
