Want some context on the torrid pace of fintech financing in the first three months of 2014?

Consider this: a year ago, fourteen Finovate alums raised a total of more than $150 million in the first quarter of 2013.

A year later, we have just nine alums raising more than twice as much in the month of March alone.

March Madness, indeed.

Q1 of 2014 saw 23 Finovate alums walk away with just under $600 million in capital. The biggest haul of the quarter came courtesy of Klarna, which raised more than $125 million. 

But there were plenty of similarly impressive fundraisings, including the $85 million raised by Credit Karma, and the $77 million and $75 million secured by OnDeck and Tradeshift, respectively.

Total raised = More than $592 million

January -- $91 million raised by seven companies
February -- $139 million raised by seven companies
March -- $362 million raised by nine companies

Note: Funding prior to becoming a Finovate alum not included. Questions? Comments? Email us at David@finovate.com or Julie@finovate.com

What's better than a deal that turns your current customer base of 150,000 small and medium-sized businesses into a potential field of five million?

The same deal, with an undisclosed but "multi-million" dollar investment thrown in for good measure.

That's how the year is beginning for Tradeshift. The company announced that it has formed a partnership with Intuit, integrating its e-invoicing and business transactions platform with QuickBooks. The new free app, which connects to customer's Tradeshift or Quickbooks accounts, will be available first to QuickBooks users in the United Kingdom.

The company also announced a significant investment from Intuit, which will join Tradeshift's board of directors. Although the amount was undisclosed, it has been characterized as "multi-million".

Newly available to QuickBooks users, the app will also be an opportunity to further test Tradeshift's social networking approach to business. CEO and founder Christian Lang has said that "invoicing is one of the few business processes that's really viral." Thanks to Intuit, he'll now have five million opportunities (and undisclosed millions in new capital) to help prove his point.

See Tradeshift in action in this video from their demo at FinovateEurope 2012.
