B2B cross-border payments for platform Currencycloud has announced that it has secured an additional $80 million in funding to fuel the next phase of its growth story.

Currencycloud will use the capital to strengthen its position as the market leader in embedded cross-border payments, by expanding its portfolio of emerging payment methods and developing its partner ecosystem so that more people and businesses can benefit from its next-generation cross-border technology.

As part of its Series E funding round, Currencycloud received new backing from leading global institutions such as Visa, International Finance Corporation (a member of the World Bank Group), BNP Paribas, SBI Group and Siam Commercial Bank.

Visa, who partnered with Currencycloud in 2019 to deliver innovation in travel payments, will see Colleen Ostrowski, SVP and Treasurer of Visa Inc, join the board.

This young AI-powered customer feedback company, has just raised £400,000 and now has pre-seed funding of over £600,000. The Prodsight platform uses AI to identify, track and prioritise the most important issues coming from customer conversations. By analysing this information, clients can respond by offering targeted products or features in response to the customer needs, thus boosting satisfaction and reducing the length of the sales-cycle.

This pre-seed round was led by Techstart Ventures with participation from London-based TrueSight Ventures as well as private investors. Prodsight also has the support of The Royal Society of Edinburgh and Scottish Enterprise.
