GetVantage, a revenue-based financing fintech and growth platform for SMEs, has attracted a US$ 36 million growth financing round led by Varanium Nexgen Fintech Fund, and DMI Sparkle Fund.
Existing backers Chiratae Ventures and Dream Incubator Japan and new investors Sony Innovation Fund, InCred Capital, and Haldiram’s Family Office also participated.
Combined with the $5 million seed round announced in 2020, this brings GetVantage’s total funding raised so far to over $40 million. This includes multiple debt lines with leading NBFC partners to rapidly scale its all-in-one finance and growth platform.
The new investment will power the growth of GetVantage’s performance-based financing solution and embedded finance product, enhance technology infrastructure, scale its product suite to meet the evolving needs of fast-growing digital businesses, expand its growing portfolio of B2B SaaS and subscription-driven businesses, and explore new-market opportunities across Southeast Asia.
