Banking startup Dave reached $1bn valuation

Dave, a finance startup, has received $50mn from Norwest.

In Brief:

  • Dave offers money management tools to help customers avoid overdraft fees.

  • It has around 4mn users and 800,000 people on its waiting list.

  • The investment will be used to expand its product and engineering team.

What does this mean?

Dave has been going for about two years now so it’s a huge achievement to become a unicorn at this stage. The company, unlike some of its money management competitors, charges a subscription fee. Access to its tools costs $1 per month, with users asked for a ‘tip’ if they benefit from the tools by avoiding overdraft fees.
