Fluidly, one of the 20 winners of the Nesta Challenge Prize on Open Banking in July 2017, has secured £5 million in Series A funding. The round was led by New York-based Nyca Partners with participation from existing investors Octopus Ventures, Anthemis and tech angels including Simon Murdoch and Charlie Songhurst.
The London-based Fintech startup is working to deliver intelligent cashflow management for SMEs. Fluidly says that cashflow management is the single biggest financial pain-point for SMEs. Fluidly uses machine learning to predict and optimise the future cashflows for SMEs and provides the key to financial decision-making. Fluidly is a SaaS platform that integrates with both cloud accounting packages and Open Banking APIs.
Since launching a year ago, Fluidly says it has grown rapidly and is now working with nine of the top 20 UK accounting firms to reach thousands of SME end users. Fluidly has also formed partnerships with leading cloud accounting software providers.
“We have experienced a phenomenal period of growth and this latest investment will enable us to scale the business even further. Cashflow forecasting and management is the key to financial decision-making – we’re on a mission to help millions of business owners sleep better at night by giving them control, certainty and confidence in their financial future.”
