As we have been monitoring the situation with Silicon Valley Bank since Thursday, we are now excited to provide this product to companies that require it. Our keen interest in the matter has led us to be proactive in delivering this solution to those who need it most. Since there is a real chance of a cash crunch at businesses on Monday, we wanted to make sure that we could assist those businesses given our strong position as a company in the space, says Hristo Borisov, co-founder, and CEO of Payhawk. We needed not to exploit the situation and contribute to the bank run on Thursday and Friday.

Around a year ago, the business raised $100M (roughly €89.16M) to increase its Series B round to $215M (roughly €191.69M) at a valuation of $1B.
