Berlin-based pliant scores €18 million for its corporate credit card solution

Just 4 months after announcing its first seed round, Berlin-based pliant has closed €18 million for its corporate credit card. The funding was led by Alstin Capital, Main Incubator and Saber, with participation from Ramin Niroumand.

Pliant offers a flexible corporate credit card solution that focuses on seamless integrations into existing processes, alongside providing fully digital card management and cashback. The fintech startup was founded in 2020 by Malte Rau and Fabian Terner.

The young company aims to offer customers an optimal solution through adopting a technology-first approach. The credit card solution can be combined with other SaaS offerings – namely in the areas of accounting, travel expense, and, invoice management. In doing so, pliant is pioneering a flexible credit card solution for companies. 

The flexibility of pliant means that its product can individually adapt to the needs, processes and structures of both scaling and established companies. Seamless integration removes the headache that normally arises for companies bringing in new technology to their processes.

Since August, the fintech startup has seen impressive growth with revenues increasing fivefold in just a few months. With the new funds, pliant plans to continue this growth trajectory through deepening its software integration offering and expanding to other European markets. 

Fabian Terner, CPO, stated: “For us, this commitment from our investors is proof that we are on the right track. We are entering a new phase of our growth plan with pliant.”
