Stockholm-based fintech company Invoier, which has built a marketplace for the trading of invoices, said it has secured a 4.1 million euros equity funding by EU’s innovation organization, the European Innovation Council (EIC) Fund.
The marketplace is built on a unique AI-based risk assessment method, making it possible for professional investors to enter a new asset class and bid in real-time, aiming to challenge the 3 billion euros factoring market.
