Our founding mission is to give every business equitable access to working capital. We’re tearing down the barriers inherent in traditional financing and removing the risk associated with lending so businesses around the globe can access capital to achieve their goals — faster than ever.
C2FO was born out of a need for better access to working capital.
Raised in a family of bankers and moving his way up the ranks to CEO and President of a regional bank, C2FO Founder and CEO Alexander “Sandy” Kemper focused on the idea of reducing lending risks through better data and technology in order to deliver more capital to more businesses faster and easier.
After leaving the banking world, and while building his first technology startup, Sandy faced the kind of cash flow challenge he had seen too many times before in other high-growth startups. Even with more than $10 million in accounts receivable, his company was short on cash one month and needed it quickly. Sandy made the risky decision to reach out to one of his key customers and ask for an early payment on a $1 million invoice to cover growing expenses.
The customer agreed to pay the invoice 30 days early for a 1% discount, enabling Sandy to seamlessly keep operations running.
That day, Sandy realized there should be a better way for businesses to leverage early pay discounting through a trusted network of risk-free capital from approved invoices. He envisioned a single platform that would allow businesses to access working capital without having to borrow, without barriers like prohibitive interest rates and fees, paperwork, collateral and exclusionary application requirements — or difficult phone calls.
Since C2FO’s first transaction in 2010, we’ve built a platform that the world’s largest companies trust to facilitate early payment on over 50 million approved invoices per day for over 2+ million in-network businesses across the globe, totaling over $265 billion in funding to date and generating more than $1.3 billion in EBITDA for enterprise buyer customers and results in $2.2 billion in estimated new earnings for our supplier customers to date.
C2FO stands for Collaborative Cash Flow Optimization. And we believe cash flow should do just that — flow easily from one business to another. Since 2008, we’ve dedicated ourselves to bringing the world’s businesses together with innovative win-win solutions that have the power to transform the way the world does business.
