Silverflow, a cutting-edge payment processing technology company, has secured a €15 Million investment led by industry veterans and payments experts at Global Paytech Ventures.
Industry sources added that Picus Capital, Coatue, Crane Venture Partners, Inkef, and several angel investors also participated with a valuation substantially higher than Series A in 2021.
Industry sources added that the investment will be utilized to fast-track Silverflow’s aggressive global expansion plans. This announcement comes on the heels of Silverflow’s official expansion into the US and APAC markets earlier this year, after which the company swiftly secured new customer contracts in these regions.
Former Mastercard Europe CEO and Founder & Managing Director of Global Paytech Ventures Javier Perez stated: “We are delighted to lead this round, raising €15 Million cash. Silverflow presents a unique opportunity for enabling both legacy and new players of any kind to have access to deploy the most modern, secure, and efficient payment processing platform to acquirers, PSPs, PayFacs, and merchants to enable them to outperform existing legacy players. We would also like to extend a thank you to our fellow co-investors.”
Florian Reichert, Partner and Managing Director at Picus Capital: “We are excited to join Silverflow’s journey after having followed the company very closely since its seed round. The team has built a best-in-class solution that is disrupting the payment processing market and we are convinced they will continue to build the clear category leader in the space. We very rarely received such strong customer feedback and expert validation which underlines their innovative product vision and superior technology.”
“Our biggest challenge has been getting customers to believe this technology is real,” stated Anne Willem de Vries, “They often tell us it’s too good to be true. It’s hard to fathom that after utilizing the same technology for 30-40 years Silverflow has taken the time to build something better that solves these complex issues for our customers.”
Industry sources added that the payments industry has seen its fair share of disruptors in the past decade or so with players like Adyen, Stripe, Paypal and more making huge technological improvements to the front end, providing easy-to-use and innovative solutions for merchants to leverage the latest payments options on the market.
However, little has been done to improve the backend payment processing, which has been running on technology that is nearly 40 years old. The Silverflow founders saw an opportunity to vastly improve the way payment processing was being done by creating a brand new approach that allows acquirers, PSPs, PayFacs, and large merchants to gain access to one platform that provides all card scheme data and the most innovative functionality all in one easy-to-use platform.
Industry sources added that Silverflow is a new kind of payment processing platform designed for today’s payment needs and fit for the future. A cloud-native solution with a single API to the card networks and set up on one. One platform with one connection. Silverflow is disrupting the payment industry with cutting-edge, cloud-based processing technology.
