Want a little foretaste?

Ante Spittler on the fundraising round of the US startup Ramp, its own Series A extension and the digitization of financial management in SMEs:

"Insane growth, insane valuation and also insane volume. There's no other way to put it. I think one topic is becoming clearer and clearer as a result, and you see it in Europe as well: the whole category, the whole area of digitalization of financial management at SMEs and at SMBs is simply very present and is now ready for disruption. 

All over the world, there are business models that are establishing themselves in that context and they are also performing very well. [...] And we just have our own angle, so I think that's a nice confirmation for all of us first of all and gives upward momentum.

We have now raised over 45 million in the context of the whole Series-A and I think the only relevant thing is: this capital can now be invested very smartly, if you do it right, and just create long-term value. That's our ambition now, and I very much assume that's the ambition of our colleagues at Ramp as well." [orig. German]
