For more than three years we worked our butts off, in almost complete silence. Our lips were sealed, even subtly avoiding pillow talk. Only in September last year did we slightly lift the veil, when we became the first greenfield party in 35 years to get a Dutch banking permit.
But finally, the moment has arrived: we kicked off the invite-only beta! We have built an app that lets you use your money in a safe and fun way, giving you the freedom to use it however you see fit.
A lot was - and still is - broken about the financial industry. We want to fundamentally change that by building new and cool solutions that actually benefit you. That’s how bunq came about. Out of frustration - but more importantly - out of the conviction that things can be better. Yesterday was our debut: during a party for friends and family we launched our invite-only beta.

tl;dw, what’s in it for me?
Whether you find nearpay payments to friends convenient, want to request some money from someone, love adding pictures or just value our ideology, in the end bunq revolves around you. We have noticed bunq is used differently by different people. The best way to find out is by just giving it a shot. After all, it won’t cost you a thing.
Be a part of bunq
We start with an invite-only beta so we can improve the app before we unleash all of our creativity. Do you want to be a part of this beta? Grab hold of a bunqer and persuade him or her to invite you!
