Aur is one of the leading FinTech companies in Iceland, founded in 2015 by Nova and Kind Sheep (a company where I owned 33% share). Later we added two more shareholders to the mix. Borgun, a leading payment facilitator in Iceland and Kvika Bank which focuses on asset management and investment services. I served as a Board Member on behalf of Kind Sheep and later on behalf of myself after having acquired all of Kind Sheep’s shares in 2020.
The Aur app, like all the apps I’ve designed, is very simple and easy to use. With the Aur app, Icelanders can transfer money to each other without having to know each other’s bank information.
In March 2021 I sold all my shares in Aur to Kvika Bank who acquired all shares in Aur app.
