kindrik partners advises fintech startup neat on US$4m series a extension



We recently helped Neat, a Hong Kong based fintech startup, on a US$4 million extension to their US$11 million Series A round which closed earlier this year.

Neat started over two years ago with a focus on making business accounts accessible to startups and SMEs in Hong Kong. Existing investors that participated in the series A extension include Mass Mutual Vetnures, Linear Capital, Pacific Century Group, and Robby Hilkowitz, as well as new investor Vectr Fintech.

The coronavirus pandemic has not stopped Neat’s momentum.

“Some of the world’s most successful companies were born during or just after the financial crisis of 2008, think of WhatsApp and Uber,” says David Rosa, CEO.

“The majority of businesses founded during COVID-19 will have a digital-first mindset, which means they will have an opportunity to start trading globally from day one. We’re excited to be supporting this new wave of international entrepreneurs.”

With the new funding, Neat will continue product development as well as improving its customer support experience and fuelling its growth.
