News & Benchmarks

Talkwalker, a major player in the social media analytics market, is pleased to announce it has secured €5 million in funding from leading Dutch software investor, Main Mezzanine Capital. The funding will allow Talkwalker to accelerate development of its existing social media analytics platform while expanding its sales teams in Europe and the US.  A major part of the funding will be invested in the further development of its existing artificial intelligence capabilities. This will accelerate the implementation of revolutionary new features which will join existing features such as Talkwalker's business impact metrics, image recognition, IQ Apps and the virality map. Talkwalker has doubled in size and revenues for four consecutive years and today employs over 120 employees. It has become a must-have service in the social media listening and analytics market; a market that is estimated to grow from $1.6B in 2015 to $5.4B by 2020 according to market research firm MarketsandMarkets.   Talkwalker's rapid growth demonstrates the demand for social data intelligence as brands realize that social media holds vital client and competitor insights, and business data. The Talkwalker platform analyzes visuals and text in 187 languages providing a centralized social data intelligence solution with unlimited users and use cases, plus advanced APIs to ensure data integrity throughout the company. Brands and agencies benefit from KPI-driven, real-time analytics across all media channels which puts them in full control of their brand reputation and social media performance. Headquartered in Luxembourg, Talkwalker opened its first US office in New York City in 2015. The company has recently gained significant traction through the acquisition of new clients in the US market and is used by brands, agencies, and consultancies. Expert customer service and support are important differentiators for Talkwalker. With this in mind, its goal is proximity to prospects and clients and this funding will allow for geographic expansion, more local offices, and the hiring of new talent. Read more
Rakuten, Inc. today announced at a formal reception at the Embassy of Luxembourg in Tokyo that it has officially launched commercial banking operations in Europe with Rakuten Europe Bank S.A.  Rakuten Europe Bank will offer banking services throughout Europe. While initially focusing on providing payment, deposit and loan services for merchants on the PriceMinister e-commerce platform in France, the bank also plans to expand these services to merchants on other Rakuten Group marketplaces. Rakuten Europe Bank is positioned to become the banking platform for the businesses that make up the growing Rakuten Ecosystem in Europe, as well as offer banking services to new and high-growth fintech businesses across the region. Rakuten’s European headquarters were first established in Luxembourg in March 2008 to oversee the operations, finances and human resources of Rakuten’s businesses in the region and, since acquiring a banking license in February 2015, Rakuten has made preparations for the launch of commercial banking operations with Rakuten Europe Bank from this base.  Pierre Gramegna, Minister of Finance for Luxembourg commented “I am very pleased that Rakuten has joined the growing ranks of international groups that have chosen Luxembourg as the European hub for their banking operations. Rakuten Europe Bank will be a valuable addition to Luxembourg’s thriving Fintech ecosystem and contribute to foster innovation in the financial center.”  “We are extremely pleased to be able to begin commercial operations with our European banking license from our Luxembourg offices,” commented Masayuki Hosaka, Representative Director and Vice Chairman, Rakuten, Inc. and head of Rakuten’s fintech businesses. “Since its founding, the Rakuten Group has worked to develop the Rakuten Ecosystem, a comprehensive range of online services centered around Rakuten membership, including fintech businesses, such as credit cards, banking, securities and life insurance. With Rakuten Europe Bank, we aim to provide banking services in Europe that will parallel the successes of the Rakuten Group’s fintech businesses in Japan.” Rakuten will continue to strive to create and provide new services in Europe and develop the Rakuten Ecosystem in the region. - press release Rakuten -
