We recently helped Neat, a Hong Kong-based fintech startup, raise US$11M in its Series A deal led by Pacific Century Group.  Other investors included Visa and MassMutual Ventures, as well as existing Neat investors Dymon, Linear Capital and Sagamore Investments.  

Neat started over two years ago with a focus on making business accounts accessible to startups and SMEs in Hong Kong. Neat now powers the finances of thousands of companies and has offices in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and London. The series A funds will go towards further expansion, primarily focusing on businesses that trade between Europe and Asia.

Neat’s co-founder and CEO David Rosa said of working with Kindrik Partners, “Fundraising for a startup company is an extensive process. We have ambitious goals and Kindrik Partners’ meticulous support and extensive expertise throughout has helped bring us closer to our vision of helping global entrepreneurs.”

Lee Bagshaw, who heads our Southeast Asia practice, commented, “With so much uncertainty globally it’s great to see significant startup financing rounds still closing in Hong Kong, particularly in high growth areas such as fintech. We’re excited to support Neat on its journey to serve entrepreneurs and startups.”
