Costs cannot be covered: the next German finance company files for bankruptcy

The next financial company has to file for bankruptcy in Germany. Vantik’s start-up costs could no longer be covered.

Berlin FinTech Vantik is insolvent. Like “” reported, the startup talks about a “completely amazing” funding round that went off. As a result, the income of Vantikcard and Vantikfonds is currently not enough to cover the costs. Therefore, a provisional insolvency application has now been filed.

“The team around Vantik founder Til Klein wants to pursue the goal and achieve a joint takeover of the company with the participation of a financial investor,” said insolvency administrator Christian Otto.
