    Who are they?

    📈 Since our launch, our mission has remained true to our ambition: to offer digital SMEs a simple, fast and flexible financing solution, all without dilution. And this, in a delicate macroeconomic context that weakens companies.

    The debt line is simple, fast (< 48h) and flexible and it allows to release funds to accompany the investments of digital companies on key expense items such as :

    • Customer acquisition (Ads, marketing);
    • Fast ROI recruitment;
    • Financing of supplier invoices and inventory.

    With Karmen, companies unlock immediate cash flow that boosts their performance, while maintaining full control of their business.

    💰 Karmen raised (in Seed series) €22M in January 2022 from prestigious international investors. Karmen continues its conquest of the French market before going international in Europe.

    Karmen continues its momentum with a new 50M€ (debt) round in November 2022 to support the growth of digital companies.
    In January 2023, B2B neo-bank Qonto embeds Karmen financing for all its 300k clients in France.

    💡Founded in May 2021, the Karmen team has grown from 3 co-founders to 20 people in less than 6 months. Joining Karmen means joining an ambitious fintech where everything remains to be written, together!
