for expansion into Europe.

pleased to have completed our latest funding round, led by Frog Capital,
and to have found a likeminded investor to work closely with the
leadership team and our existing lead investor, Blenheim Chalcot, to
pursue the significant global opportunity for our business. We’ve
rapidly demonstrated the size of the market opportunity having processed
more than £10bn of payments through the platform in our first two full
years of operation. The investment allows us to take the next step in
pursuing our vision to become the world’s leading digital alternative
for commercial & wholesale payments”.
