Israeli fintech company Unit today announced the completion of a $51 million Series B financing round led by Accel and with the participation of existing investors Better Tomorrow Ventures, Aleph, Flourish Ventures, and TLV Partners.
Unit has developed a banking-as-a-service platform, which allows companies to swiftly launch new banking products.

Unit Go is currently in beta and will be publicly available in the fall of 2021
Unit said, “We designed Unit to be the simple and robust platform to empower the next generation of fintech builders, and we’ve grown fast since launching out of stealth last year.
