Giant Chinese technology holding company Tencent is leading a funding round in British FinTech Previse, SkyNews reported Thursday (April 21).
The entire round Series B round Tencent is leading, SkyNews reported, will be about $10.4 million. The investment would value Previse at about $91 million.
According to SkyNews, Tencent also holds stakes in British technology companies Monzo, a digital bank, and Ultraleap, a business that uses ultrasound waves to simulate users’ sense of touch.
SkyNews reported that spokesmen for Tencent and Previse declined to comment on the investment.
London-based Previse states on its website that its goal is to “turbo-charge B2B commerce by using buyer/supplier trading data.”
Describing its technology, Previse’s website said it can process “corporate and small- and medium-sized enterprise trading data globally and use [artificial intelligence] to predict future revenues and price the risk accurately.”
According to investment data firm Crunchase, Previse already has raised about $25 million through nine rounds.
Investors in previous rounds, according to Crunchbase, include Bessemer Venture Partners, Mastercard and Hambro Perks Ltd.
The company’s three co-founders, according to Crunchbase, are: Paul Christensen, Giulio Rossi and Philipp Schoenbucher.
