A vision to digitise Corporate Banking
The concept behind Mitigram was born in 2014 by experienced Treasury and Transaction Banking professionals who saw the need to streamline and augment international trade by opening up a closed market with transformational innovation. The initial service was detailed and designed in close cooperation with large Nordic global exporters. The first corporation went live with commercial transactions in 2015.
The company is based in Stockholm, Sweden, and has coverage operations across Europe. Mitigram is backed by leading Nordic investors, incl. Moor Capital, a venture capital fund.
Leading disruptor in trade
In June 2017 Mitigram won the award of Leading Disruptor in Trade by Global Trade Review.
The Mitigram team is highly diverse with members from over 15 different countries and bringing experience from leading institutions in trade, investments, risk management, software, security and compliance.
