looking for an equation of a curve

While reading about Riemann, I came across a relation between random numbers and e. I am not sure if Riemann discovered the relation.

This led to an empirically calculated curve that connects the points 0,1 and 1,e, in which the slope at x=0 is 1 and the slope at x=1 is 2.

Has anyone seen such a curve and might there be a formula for it?

$f(x) = x\left(\dfrac x 2 +1\right)$ satisfies

sorry, I gave wrong boundary condition

I used Excel trendline and requested an exponential curve.
it gave a curve almost identical to y=e^x.
this means the slope at x=1 is e, not 2 as I stated before.
So my question is answered.
