Aria is a fintech startup that enables companies to accelerate their growth by securing their suppliers and their cash flow. Aria develops a financial solution implemented via API to B2B marketplaces and vertical SaaS, intending to offer instant payment options to their customers.
Aria has secured $53.3 million in a debt fundraising round from M&G Investments. The capital will bolster the company’s financial capacity and accelerate its business development through new products. The company also intends to finance the invoices of freelancers and SMEs and increase its total payroll by 60% by recruiting 15 new profiles.
Aria, Paris, France, was founded in 2020 by Clément Carrier and Vincent Folny. “We founded Aria with the ambition to give all businesses access to financing solutions. And this, regardless of the economic situation in which they find themselves,” said Aria co-founder and CEO Clément Carrier. “We are therefore offering the possibility for freelancers and small businesses to be paid instantly and directly using the tools and services they use on a daily basis. This funding will strengthen Aria’s position while giving us the means to continue our growth on a European scale. We are delighted to see the confidence and interest of a leading European investor like M&G Investments in our business.”
