Klarna was founded in 2005 in Stockholm, Sweden to make it easier for people to shop online. In the last 17 years, technology has evolved, excited and transformed the world around us. Yet our mission remains as relevant as ever, to become the world’s favorite way to shop through convenience, inspiration and perks.
Klarna is now one of the highest valued private fintechs globally and provides payment solutions for 147 million active consumers across 400,000+ merchants in 45 countries.
With Klarna consumers can shop now and pay later, so they can get what they need today. Klarna’s offering to consumers and retailers include payments, social shopping, and personal finances.
When the company acquired SOFORT in 2014 the Klarna Group was formed. Klarna is backed by investors such as Sequoia Capital, Silver Lake, Bestseller Group, Dragoneer, Permira, Visa, Ant Group and Atomico.
