Soldo, a London fintech startup that offers a multi-user spending account, raises $11M led by Accel


Soldo, a London-based fintech startup that offers a multi-user spending account, initial launched for consumers and given tailored to businesses too, has lifted $11 million in Series A funding. Venture Capital organisation Accel led a round, with appearance from Connect Ventures, InReach Ventures, U-Start and R204 Partners.

Founded by Carlo Gualandri, who formerly helped emanate Italy’s initial online bank, Soldo offers a multi-user spending comment for businesses that need to muster and conduct losses opposite an whole company.

It enables companies to “delegate, control and track” departmental and worker spending in genuine time by mixing a Soldo account, executive dashboard, apps for iOS and Android and practical wallets or earthy “pre-paid” MasterCards that can be handed out to employees, departments and even outmost consultants or contractors.

In serve — and pivotal to a startup’s prophesy — Soldo offers granular spending controls that are during a heart of a tech stack. This allows for opposite responsibility criteria for any employee, executive or spending department, with permissions set and all spending trackable centrally. For example, money boundary can be set and companies can select to retard online payments, cashpoint withdrawals and unfamiliar transactions.

The other upside is that a Soldo Business mobile app lets users supplement transaction information and photos of receipts, while a whole complement integrates with ordinarily used business accounting packages. This, a association claims, has a intensity to significantly cut down on a executive weight of company-wise output tracking and a costs typically concerned in doing so.

“We’re vehement about Soldo, since it’s an well-developed group rebellious a outrageous marketplace opportunity,” Sonali De Rycker, partner during Accel, tells me. “Carlo is a world-class businessman and has fabricated a group that has worked with him building successful companies several times over. They have a singular multiple of low imagination in both program and financial services that’s compulsory to build a card-centric spend government resolution like Soldo.”

Furthermore, De Rycker says that spend government is a large headache for financial departments and employees, and that Soldo provides a win-win resolution for both, quite for a underserved SME market.

“It gives a financial dialect an increasing turn of control in handling spend during an particular level, and gives employees a required coherence to do their jobs well but a admin compared with regulating personal cards, submitting losses or pity a association card,” she says.

Meanwhile, I’m told that a Series A appropriation will be used to serve strengthen Soldo’s record and to support growth, as a association expands over a U.K. and Italy and to launch elsewhere in Europe.
