Cashflow management platform secures £5m worth of RBS funding
London-based fintech startup Fluidly has been awarded £5m as part of the RBS Alternative Remedies Package.
The grant is one of five from Pool D of the £425m Capability and Innovation Fund (CIF) - that forms part of the £775m package - which is administered by Banking Competition Remedies Ltd (BCR).
Fluidly will use the funding to accelerate the development of its AI-driven cashflow management software and give small businesses better access to emerging technology.
Caroline Plumb, CEO and founder of Fluidly, said: “Fluidly works to help SMEs sleep better at night, by providing control, certainty and confidence around cashflow.
“We’re thrilled to have been awarded this £5m grant by BCR to scale our impact and support for businesses.
“We’re intent on building a product that helps businesses with their most pressing challenge and allow them to benefit from the transformational potential of AI.”
Following on from its £5m Series A in November 2018 led by Nyca Partners, the £5m BCR grant will significantly boost Fluidly’s existing expansion plans, data science capabilities and product roadmap.
Fluidly aims to unlock financial data for SMEs and transform how businesses manage their finances, while also bringing together the wider banking and fintech ecosystems.
As part of the various public commitments the company laid out in its BCR bid, Fluidly aims to connect 400,000 SMEs to its platform by September 2022.
