3 years ago, 2 guys embarked on a singular mission to reinvent banking for businesses. Since then, Aspire has evolved from strength to strength, providing modern business banking services to a wide range of aspiring entrepreneurs across Southeast Asia and beyond.
February marks a momentous occasion for Aspire as a company, our three year anniversary. From humble beginnings as a two-man fintech startup founded by Andrea and Giovanni, to our breakthrough into being the leading challenger bank serving businesses in the region, we revisit Aspire’s journey since inception.
Leading the way in fintech innovation in SEA, we look back at the many firsts we’ve achieved as a company and as an industry.
As a locally founded company supporting local entrepreneurs, Aspire continues to support the local community in Singapore and SouthEast Asia. We believe in the potential of SEA’s modern and aspiring entrepreneurs, from bringing digital transformation to local FnBs to rolling out COVID-19 support with regional leaders like Lazada.
Our passion and enthusiasm towards growth has allowed us to bridge borders - allowing locally formed businesses to serve international customers from day 1. In 2020, we launched our business accounts and cards which allows our customers to go beyond borders, save time, and save costs. Coupling this with our recently launched Aspire Kickstart, local and foreign businesses now can incorporate their business and open a business account in Singapore within one workday.
Made up of a team of entrepreneurs, Aspire is built for the modern entrepreneur, by entrepreneurs. From all of us at Aspire, we look forward to continuing to bank Southeast Asia’s internet economy for the better.
