3. Fintonic raises €5 million and hands over the management team 💳.

Fintonic, Spain's leading startup in the fintech sector, is handing over its management team for the first time in its history. After years of leadership, since Lupina Iturriaga and Sergio Chalbaud, founders and co-CEOs, created the company, they hand over to a new management team equipo👋🏼**.**.

Fintonic was one of the first apps to incorporate banking aggregation📚. Over time, the analysis of the user's financial profile allowed them to offer products such as insurance ☔️ or préstamos🫰🏼, based on the user's credit ranking✅.

With this investment entry, the company's debt has been capitalised and a change in the leadership and management📇. The company will now be managed through a kind of co-governance, with one professional representative from ING, one from SquareOne Capital and one from Fintonic👨🏻‍💼🧑🏻‍💼👩🏼‍💼.

4. Twitter's social network competitor Spill launches iOS app in Beta Privada🗣️.

In the days when Elon Musk kept us on our toes, when he bought Twitter, there were many corpses left behind at camino🥷🏼. Between layoffs, disputes and dissidents, the former-twitters multiplied. Many took advantage of the pull (and the anger🤬) to found new companies with which to hurt their ex-jefe🖕🏼.

This is the case of Spill, the microblogging network with more visual content 👁️ and with a special commitment to communities. The social network has been structured with communities 👪 from the beginning instead of creating them a posteriori. This is something that makes a lot of sense when your mission is also to give prominence to traditionally underrepresented communities, such as black groups 🙋🏾‍♀️ or queer groups 🧔🏻‍♀️.

With a look that reminds us a lot of Tumblr, Spill launches 🔥 now in app via private beta and you can already join their waiting list to be notified when everything is ready📲. Will we adopt the meme-microblog-community concept as a way of expressing and informing ourselves🤓? We'll see🔮.

👉🏻 Here is the news in Techcrunch about Spill, its founder and which people are already joining as generators of contenido💇🏻‍♀️.

👉🏻 Here if you want to sign up for Spill's waiting list and be part of the launch (look at the aesthetics, it's super GenZ!👨🏼‍🎤).

5. Truckster, the truck relay company, receives €33M in Series B and Volvo's entry 🚛.

With a significant increase in its revenues in 2022, it reached €30 million, representing a 300% growth compared to 2021📈.

This funding round will allow the Spanish startup to expand internationally and strengthen its technology and management team👔. They will also focus on expanding **new corridors 🚚 and consolidating their presence in the markets internacionales🗺️.* One of their CEO's mantra phrases sums up the company perfectly: Our relay system allows truck drivers to sleep at home😴.*.
