eFaktor has grown impressively since its establishment in 2015 and today finances c. PLN 1 billion of invoices annually. Its diversified customer base has been built up through its strong distribution channels leveraging brokers, partners and internal sources, while its robust risk management framework helps it to maintain a low default rate and ensure portfolio quality. eFaktor currently employs a team of approximately 40 experienced professionals.

The funding is earmarked for scaling the fast-growing and profitable business further. Piotr Gąsiorowski, President of the Management Board of eFaktor, said, “eFaktor was created in the belief that every entrepreneur deserves help and support to obtain the funding they need. We are delighted to have partnered with an experienced backer to help us support even more  growing businesses with managing their financial liquidity as they grow.
