C2FO Raises $200 Million Led by SoftBank Vision Fund

Published 

Kansas City, Mo – C2FO announced today the completion of a $200 million funding round led by the SoftBank Vision Fund with additional participation from existing investors Temasek and Union Square Ventures. Following the investment, Nahoko Hoshino will join the C2FO board of directors on behalf of SoftBank Investment Advisers.

The investment is designed to accelerate C2FO’s development of new markets to further improve access to working capital for companies globally, not just large multinational corporations, but also small and medium-sized enterprises.

“We are very fortunate to have a team who, for years, has delivered industry-leading unit economics, extraordinary customer satisfaction, and strong global growth,” said Sandy Kemper, C2FO Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Due to their work, we have now grown to match over $1.2 trillion of accounts receivable and accounts payable.”

C2FO’s online marketplace has quickly emerged as one of the most convenient and lowest-cost sources of working capital in the world. Utilizing proprietary algorithms, the company creates a seamless match between accounts receivable and accounts payable to dynamically price the value for early payment in real time. More than 300,000 businesses across 173 countries utilize C2FO to take control of their cash flow and receive more than $1 billion in funding every week.

“We invested in C2FO because we think their disruptive innovation offers a solution to an industry that has traditionally lacked cost-efficient alternatives for businesses of all sizes looking to free up cash quickly,” said Akshay Naheta, Managing Partner for SoftBank Investment Advisers. “We believe the company’s platform provides maximum value for buyers and suppliers and are excited by the company’s vision to become the global exchange for working capital.”

“This infusion of capital from the Vision Fund and existing investors will be used to further our expansion as we strive to build a new world wherein the increased liquidity provided by the C2FO platform helps companies and in turn, entire economies, grow more rapidly,” added Kemper.
