What are we solving?
cash is slow
Payment terms to SME businesses have lengthened over recent economic cycles creating working capital constraints for small and medium businesses.
Accessibility to finance
The traditional funding dynamic between banks and SME businesses has broken down since the financial crisis of 2008-2010, creating a funding gap for these businesses, which needs to be filled.
There is a tech led evolution in working capital funding.
The utilisation of technology and tech platforms to harness big data is creating new opportunities for SME’s to obtain working capital funding, filling the funding gap that they experience. Blackstar is at the forefront of this shift.
We partner with platforms that access and harness the invoicing and payment behaviour of large corporates and their supply chain. This enables Blackstar to make data driven funding decisions on a risk managed basis. We can then create an automated process to provide, fast and efficient financing to eligible suppliers of large enterprise buyers against their outstanding receivables (invoices).
In essence, Embedded Finance is the offering of financial products alongside and embedded inside – a corporate’s invoice payment system.
