Kapital secures $165m to power AI financial platform for SMEs
By Delisha Fernandes
Kapital, a global bank and tech platform, has closed an oversubscribed $40 million Series B equity financing round and $125 million debt raise.
Tribe Capital led the Series B, with participation from Cervin Ventures, Tru Arrow, MS&AD Ventures, Alumni Ventures among others.
“Our recent funding round will propel us forward as we embark on an exciting expansion across Latin America and beyond. Over 80,000 customers already entrust us with the financial health of their businesses, and we are introducing more AI-driven products while pushing into new markets,” said Rene Saul, Kapital’s CEO and Co-Founder. “We are grateful for the confidence our customers and our investors have shown in us, and we are excited for Kapital’s bright future ahead.”
Kapital will use the funds to invest further in its R&D and tech platform to strengthen its cross-border offering and grow its product suite to provide insights for its customers.
Kapital leverages data and artificial intelligence (AI) to provide SMEs with sophisticated enterprise technology that rivals what is typically only available for large corporations via ERPs. With a Kapital account, SMEs can see and manage their business cash flows in real-time dashboards.
“Kapital is punching way above its weight,” said Arjun Sethi, Chairman and CIO at Tribe Capital. “So many financial platforms raise billions before achieving this level of success: They’ve not only achieved venture-scale growth in a fraction of the time, but they’ve also done so profitably. And they’re just getting started: Kapital is in Latin America today, but the potential of the platform and the company’s growth aspirations are very much global. I can’t wait to see them grow from $100 million run rate revenue to $1 billion of revenue over the coming years.”
