Who are they?

Lemonway est un Établissement de Paiement pan-européen qui propose une solution dédiée aux marketplaces B2B, B2C et C2C ainsi qu’aux plateformes de financement participatif. Plus concrètement, Lemonway offre un système de traitement des paiements et de collecte pour le compte de tiers dans un cadre sécurisé et réglementé (KYC, lutte anti-fraude). Utilisée dans plus de 15 pays européens, la société possède des bureaux à Paris, Londres, Milan, Madrid et prochainement Berlin.

Depuis sa co-création en 2007 par Antoine Orsini, la société Fintech emploie plus de 150 personnes et rassemble plus de 20 nationalités. Parallèlement, Damien Guermonprez co-dirige l’établissement de paiement depuis 5 ans . Lemonway bénéficie du « passeport financier » dans 28 pays en Europe grâce à l’obtention de la licence d’Établissement de Paiement fin 2012 auprès de l’ACPR. En 2018, Lemonway connaît une première levée de fonds de 10 millions d’euros avec Breega Capital et Speedinvest. Un an plus tard, en 2019, le fond d’investissement britannique ToscaFund Asset Management permet une accélération de la croissance de l’entreprise en apportant à son tour 25 millions d’euros.

Déjà leader sur le marché du crowdfunding en Europe, Lemonway a pour ambition de le devenir également auprès des marketplaces. En 2020, portée par cette croissance exceptionnelle et classée dans le FrenchTech120, elle déménage dans des locaux flambant neufs en plein cœur de Paris, à deux pas de la rue Montorgueil.
