TreasurySpring is a B2B fintech startup helping companies through their platform to access and manage short-term cash investments. The company is minimizing risks and maximizing investment benefits to what would otherwise be idle cash holdings.
London-based TreasurySpring just raised a $29 Million Series B round led by Balderton Capital with additional backing from new and existing investors. The company’s three founders Kevin Cook, James Skillenand Matthew Longhurst, all come from investment backgrounds and wanted to build a tool to make it more accessible to mid-range and startup companies.
Issues with bank crashes like Credit Suisse and SVB have put the company on the map and increased interest from companies looking to make their cash profitable and safer. While TreasurySpring is aiming for accessibility, its clients are not small fish, most have from $5 to $10 million in cash to invest.
