Costa Rican fintech company Impesa announced the raising of a $2.7 million round of capital to drive an expansion plan in the United States, Mexico, and South America.
The company, which specializes in the control of financial instruments and software development, stated that it obtained the resources from contributions from current shareholders of the company and new international investors.
The lead investor, the company explained in a press release, was Invermaster Ventures. This Miami-based entity specializes in venture capital investments in the technology-financial sector.
A fintech (the union of finance and technology) is a company that provides financial services through the intensive use of technology; many times they do it on the fringes of financial groups.
As reported by Impesa, this is the third capital injection it has achieved since 2017. In that year, the main capital came from Dominican Agrega Partners, a co-managing firm of the INICIA Financial Services platform, which became a partner of the company.
Mario Hernández, CEO and co-founder of Impesa, highlighted the importance of the added partners in the firm’s development because they “add value” and serve as “a very important letter of introduction” to banks, regulators, and strategic companies, such as Visa.
He also pointed out that Impesa has shown sustained growth over the last four years, which makes it a very interesting option for international investors seeking to diversify their portfolios.

We have products for each segment with specialized solutions that facilitate transactions with controls, e-commerce and we have a very clear innovation roadmap that we will carry out in 2022 and 2023″, he stressed.
