In 2009, Céline Lazorthes, as a school project, was looking for a way to collect money from different people online to buy gifts or items together. In her search for the right platform, she wasn't able to find a solution and decided to create a platform by herself that would allow her to do so.
Leetchi was born in 2009 and started to take off by the ingenuity of each time when you create a money pot that you can invite friends to the platform too.
In the early days it was a typical start-up. However the ability to collect money from different sources, hold that money (escrow), and then pay-out to a specific user needed a specific payment solution.
In a search for the right solution, she quickly realised that no-such solution was available on the market and with her team created its own technology to facilitate these money flows.
