The combination of peer-to-peer lending and business receivables financing championed by P2Binvestor continues to pay dividends for the Colorado-based startup.
P2Binvestor announced on Monday that it had successfully raised $1.2 million in equity and warrants in Series A round of funding. Participating were entrepreneur John Spiers, Rockies Venture Club investors, as well as others. The financing will help the crowdfunding receivables company grow its software platform, and expand its sales and marketing operations to accommodate new business.
P2Binvestor helps connect the needs of small businesses seeking capital with entrepreneurs and investors seeking market-based returns. Collateralized by business receivables, the funding made available to small businesses via the P2Binvestor platform often provides working capital that is both quicker and more efficient than what has been offered traditionally by the banks.
Said P2Binvestor CEO and co-founder, Bruce Morgan, “Bank credit remains tight … 67 percent of small businesses were unable to secure bank loans in the first quarter of last year.”
P2B investor was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in Denver, Colorado. The company appeared on the Finovate stage as part of the Spring 2013 show in San Francisco. See a demo of the company’s presentation here
