“MINNEAPOLIS, June 22, 2016 — B2B financial technology platform Apruve, Inc., announced today it has raised $2.25 million in a Series A funding round. The round was led by TTV Capital, with participation from Allegis Capital.”

Based in Minneapolis, Apruve was founded with a mission to make it easier for businesses to sell to other businesses. Apruve’s corporate account management and financing solution was launched at the beginning of this year. The solution allows
online B2B sellers to give their business customers a revolving line of credit without any accounts receivable or cash flow risk.

“Businesses don’t buy things online like consumers do,” said Michael Noble, CEO of Apruve. “Within B2B, sellers offering their customers credit terms on their purchases is an industry norm. The problem is that it is difficult to manage and expensive to do. With Apruve, online sellers get a turnkey solution to manage all aspects of credit approval, invoicing and collections, plus sellers are paid within 24 hours of any order placed online by their buyers, completely eliminating the need to act like a bank for their customers.”

“We believe Apruve is solving a fundamental problem that will enable more businesses to ride the $1.3 trillion wave of B2B eCommerce that is currently unfolding,” said Tom Smith, Managing Director at TTV. “Their solution takes an outdated A/R process, automates it and then underwrites the credit risk for the seller. The ROI they can deliver is extremely strong.”

The round of funding will be used to expand the development, sales, and marketing teams in Minneapolis, as well as build integrations with even more ecommerce platforms.
