Georgia's first cloud only bank
In 2017, TBC reached a decision to create a neobank that exists only as a mobile app, without traditional branches and no physical presence. Structured as an autonomous business, Space provides customers with the full range of retail banking services including loans, saving products and payment cards.
Space is the first regional cross-border digital banking platform which enables TBC Group to expand its digital banking operations internationally.

Space was first launched in Georgia as a neobank in record time of eight months and, later in 2020, in Uzbekistan under the brand name TBC Uz. Space provides all modules and systems required to roll out a greenfield digital bank or to be integrated into the existing ecosystem. Its built-in digital product portfolio enables fast rollout on the market and continues delivery of new features and improvements.
Space delivers a full daily banking mobile service with superior customer experience, placing a special focus on differentiating by design, customer care, price transparency and instant service delivery. Having chosen a fintech approach, Space was launched on Mambu due to its composable, cloud-native and API-driven nature, which supported expansion with fast time to market.
