Five FinTechs on Friday – July 31

This Friday we cover fintechs that can support your business – streamlining capital raising, lending for SMEs, financing for businesses, executing payments for SMEs and managing account receivables.


Cake streamlines share registries, capital raises, employee share schemes, and valuations. It recently partnered with Wholesale Investor and CRIISP to in streamline the capital raising, secondary sales, and venture investment experience. Cake has a significant network of over 13,000 companies and investor distribution to over 30,000 investors. The partnership deal comes on the back of a successful capital raise for Cake, which raised a $1million Seed Round in early 2020 with Industria Capital. The capital markets now sees increase liquidity in the unlisted space, and companies are staying private longer.
