Credit Service Spa, a fintech company based in Venice and specialized in invoice management and supply chain finance services, has signed an investment agreement with Valsabbina Bank and Siav, a Padua-based company leader in the Enterprise Content Management sector.
The transaction will allow the two investors to acquire a total of 25% of the company that owns the MyCreditService.com platform, and also provides for an exit plan equal to 2X for the investors that in June 2019 had supported the company through an equity crowdfunding campaign on the Fundera platform. The shares of the “crowd” investors will in fact be acquired by the company itself, in the meantime become a Spa, which will use them for its own stock-option plans. The campaign, which raised more than $267,500 (€220,000) for a pre-money value of $3.16 million (€2.6 million), was attended, among the 30 investors, also by the certified incubators Digital Magics and Trentino Sviluppo.

“We have worked from the beginning on a deal that had all the souls of fintech at its core – comments Enzo Sisti, CEO of Credit Service – namely finance and technology. We found them in a solid and visionary banking partner with the ability to interpret the new digital service offerings, and in a digital provider with a solid technology stack and widespread market presence. Thanks to these collaborations, we are now ready to develop our growth plan, which envisages arriving at financing through our platform in 2025 more than one billion commercial credits of companies.”
Founded in 2014 with a focus on trade credit management solutions, MyCreditService integrates tools for analyzing companies’ trade credit based on machine learning, with supply chain finance solutions, which allow financing and optimizing the management of industrial and commercial supply chains. In practice, a real “virtual market” where companies can sell their trade receivables to institutional investors and thus finance their working capital.
Currently, the development plan includes new frontiers such as open banking and Artificial Intelligence, indispensable tools to address a post-Covid 19 scenario, in which it will be crucial for companies to equip themselves with systems capable of managing and sharing data and information with the market and the financial ecosystem.
“The investment in Credit Service is part of the strategy of diversification and modernization of the business – underlines Hermes Bianchetti, Head of the Business Division of Banca Valsabbina -. The market of invoice trading and commercial credit in particular is large and constantly evolving and we want to develop a growth strategy shared with Credit Service, exploiting technological innovations together with innovative forms of complementary finance, supporting and sustaining businesses and the real economy”.
