Our partners can start building now - Right now! Building and launching with Swan is extremely quick and easy compared to other solutions, no need to wait ages for a demo. With a free public sandbox and no setup costs, companies can start testing out everything Swan offers within minutes. Just click Start now at Swan.io.
Developer-centricity. Our self-service platform offers the best implementation experience; our GraphQL APIs make sense and they “just work”.

An international team of experts in banking, fraud, payments, product development, and more.
Demystifying payments is his thing. Ex-developer Nicolas Benady has already cofounded two successful payment startups, Limonetik and Antelop, and Swan is his most ambitious venture yet. His favorite place is in front of the whiteboard with colleagues, building products and organizations together.
Nicolas integrated 40+ payment methods at Limonetik and went on to manage payments and a B2C Finance Management app at Veolia. He leads daily operations with a sharp product vision and unbreakable positivity. Once upon a time, Nicolas Saison was actually CEO Nicolas Benady's apprentice. The two later joined forces as partners to make Swan take flight.
Mathieu pilots super complex projects with admirable tech prowess. Passionate and altruistic, he's as comfortable sharing at a conference as he is huddled around a beer. Ex-lead dev at Xebia, then technical director, Breton has already launched his first tech company, JS-Republic, and now brings his savoir faire to Swan.
Before joining Swan as Chief Compliance Officer, Stéphie was at Leetchi, European leader in online money pots (12 million+ users), where she created a powerful scoring engine and built a compliance department from the ground up. An expert in fraud, regulation, and client services, Stéphie is just the powerhouse Swan needed to help us earn our coveted e-money license, and to provide the most robust possible compliance processes.
Luka first got to know Swan as an investor at Creandum, one of our major VCs. He was so convinced by our vision that he went on to join Swan as a Chief of Staff. Previously a Management Consultant at BCG, Luka is a jack-of-all-trades, running business development as well as other strategic projects. Being a true gourmet, he's happy to have landed in the capital of fine food: Paris.
