Over the past few years, Risika has helped to create security in trade between Danish companies through fair and accurate credit assessments.
It all started in April 2017
Risika is a Nordic FinTech start-up founded in April 2017. We want to help B2B companies save money by avoiding losses and by automating manual processes. In short, we want to make it easy to run a healthy business. We sell a SaaS product as well as API integrations that help our customers minimize their financial risk. Behind the scenes, we have an advanced engine spinning using traditional and non-traditional data sources together with cutting-edge algorithms to run automated risk assessments.
To get the best solution, you need the best team. Our team is comprised of specialists in the fields of accounting, computer science, project management, user experience (UX), risk management, statistics, sales, and marketing - a diverse and complex group of highly qualified people.
Risika was founded in April 2017 with the mission to help Danish companies to make a healthy business easier to maintain. The founders have, amongst other things, experience in banking and auditing. This combination gives a solid foundation to achieve the most reliable credit assessments. The first year was spent developing a deeper understanding of the challenges that B2B businesses face in terms of financial risk as well as develop the first prototypes of Risika’s online platform. At the same time, Risika succeeded in obtaining two investments from the Innovation Fund and assembling a team of advisors with many years of experience in strategy, credit granting, law, and investment.
This is when things started moving fast. Our team has grown to include more than 14 full-time employees compared to one in April 2018, and there’s no end to growth in sight. In December 2018, two English investors joined our team. We are gradually penetrating the British market with help from their large network in London.
At the beginning of 2019, Risika became Risika A/S. We now have a professional Board of Directors, helping us to reach the next milestones on our journey.
