A success story for the French Revenue Based Financing specialist

A French fintech company created by two serial entrepreneurs Nima Karimi and Grégory Tappero, Silvr, which gives companies access to a new form of financing, has accomplished a genuine exploit. After starting in 2020 by financing a dozen companies in equity for a million euros, then raising seed capital of €3 million at the beginning of 2021, the startup has recruited around twenty employees and financed more than 100 companies, including the most attractive French gems such as Pixpay, Cuure, Poiscaille, Lovys or Partoo.

Silvr has imported into Europe Revenue Based Financing, the “next big thing” in the fintech sector, an innovative financing model that enables companies to finance their growth while preserving their capital.

“As an entrepreneur for the past decade, I have been faced several times with the complexity of financing my startups. Banks are reluctant to grant bank loans to digital companies that do not have assets to provide as collateral.The complex and time-consuming journey of raising equity funds concerns only a handful of companies. I founded Silvr to democratise RBF in Europe, promote fairer access to capital and allow tens of thousands of entrepreneurs who create tomorrow’s services to unlock their growth potential”, says Nima Karimi, CEO and co-founder of Silvr.

A single mission: to provide those who create tomorrow’s businesses with the means to succeed

By creating the most founder-friendly financing solution possible, Silvr’s mission is to help entrepreneurs succeed. It is essential for them to be able to access funds easily to accelerate the growth of their business, without having to pay onerous counterparties. Silvr has developed a platform that allows it to adapt to all digital business models: SaaS, subscription model, e-commerce, mobile apps, etc.

Financing offers are calculated using a model developed by the startup to assess the performance of companies and their growth potential by analysing thousands of complex data (single visitors, turnover, average basket, return on ad spent of paid media campaigns, attrition rates, etc.) as well as industry-specific data. This system allows the fintech company to forecast the company’s future revenues and provide the necessary financing within 24 hours.

Focus on clients financed by Silvr:

  • On average, companies financed by Silvr saw 64% growth two months after granting their financing

  • 99% of customers financed by Silvr refinance with Silvr

  • 29% of Silvr financing is granted to companies created by women

  • 35% of companies financed are also supported by venture capital investors

“We are proud to announce this new fundraise, which is a great sign of confidence in the Silvr model. This reinforces our vision and ambition: to contribute to the growth of the digital economy in Europe thanks to our unique financing platform. We will be able to significantly accelerate our development thanks to the recruitment of around a hundred employees, set the first milestones in the creation of our own debt fund and develop technological partnerships with banks,” says Nima Karimi.
