The company aims to use the funds to strengthen its position in the market by developing new online financing products for property and vehicle equity and increasing marketing efforts.
Olle Widén, CEO and founder of FinanZero said, “We had such great interest in our previous round that we decided to extend this with an additional 1.5 million dollars this year on the same conditions and valuation as in 2022. It’s encouraging to see our investors’ continued support; this additional funding will help speed up our continued growth and product development.”
FinanZero has seen 13 million customers register on its marketplace, with 1.2 billion in loan volume. In February 2023, the company announced that it had reached 40 million loan applications.
