Digital asset-based lender InterNex Capital raised $3.85 million from family offices and private investors in an oversubscribed seed offering. The convertible notes offering, which originally targeted $2.5 million, closed last week.
InterNex was founded in May 2015 by former GE Capital senior executives and fintech experts Paul DeDomenico, co-founder and CEO and Lin Chua, co-founder, COO and head of Capital Markets. The company’s digital lending platform offers small- and mid-sized businesses an optimized client experience while enhancing asset-based underwriting and monitoring reliability through integrated technology, data analytics and artificial intelligence.
Small- and mid-sized businesses are heavily underserved when it comes to their working capital needs. The seed offering closed on the heels of InterNex securing a $100 million debt financing from 400 Capital Management in late 2016 and growing its digital asset-based revolving line of credit financing solution. InterNex has funded over $5 million to its business clients to date.
“We are delighted that our investors value the unique approach we have taken in marrying best practices in finance with cutting-edge technology to serve the small- and mid-sized business growth engine of the U.S.,” said Lin Chua. “Our business clients look to InterNex’s digital revolving lines of credit not only to solve ongoing working capital needs but also to simplify their daily operations.”
The investment enables InterNex to expand sales and marketing, scale its business operations and enhance its technology platform.
New York-based InterNex Capital is an asset-based digital lender providing revolving lines of credit from $250,000 to $5 million to small- and medium-sized businesses in B2B industries ranging from wholesalers to businesses services.
