VOY Advises Kadmos on Series A Financing Round
A team led by Clemens Koós advised fintech Kadmos on its EUR 29M Series A financing round.
Kadmos raised EUR 29M in Series A funding round led by Blossom Capital. The investment round, which follows an EUR 8.3M Seed round in December, also included existing investors Addition and Atlantic Labs.
The funding follows significant levels of demand for the product. Kadmos is already working with several high-profile shipping companies and has built a robust waitlist ahead of full-scale customer onboarding this summer. This new financing will be used for technology and product development. Kadmos is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the growing global cross-border B2C payment volume projected to reach USD 1.6 trillion by 2022, involving 169 million migrant workers across the world, according to the UN.
Kadmos is a Berlin-based Fintech on a mission to make the salary journey of millions of migrant workers more transparent, convenient, and less expensive. The startup was founded in 2021 by MIT-graduates Justus Schmueser and Sasha Makarovych with the aim to bring fintech into industries riddled with opaque mark-ups, kickbacks, and physical cash. Kadmos provides companies with a simple, low-cost, and secure method for international salary transfers, while every migrant worker receives a digital wallet as well as a connected debit card to remit or directly spend money. Kadmos has already secured several pilot customers from various industries, including shipping and construction, and is going live in Q1, 2022.
