Fintech company Payhawk received €500,000 financing by Eleven Ventures and other industry experts and angels. Some of them include Perry Blacher, Fintech advisor to Google and Senior Digital Advisor to Barclays UK, and Mark Ransford, Investor and advisor to high-growth startups in the fintech sector.
The company utilized the new investment to expand its team and operations in Europe and the UK with a newly opened sales office in London.
Payhawk was founded to solve a practical problem faced by the founders Hristo Borisov and Boyko Karadzhov:
“We constantly talk to founders and managers of growing companies that manage large budgets. But when traveling, they have to use their personal cards, and then fill out lengthy expense reports and wait for reimbursements. Our product helps small businesses operate efficiently,” explains Hristo Borisov, co-founder and CEO of Payhawk.
