Northern Light Ventures Pvt. Ltd. (NLVPL) is taking the financial technology sector by storm with its innovative online receivables Fintech platform, Finworks360.
Since its inception in September 2019, NLVPL recognized the critical need for timely working capital access for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), often hindering their growth potential. To address this challenge, NLVPL combined finance and technology to create Finworks360, a groundbreaking platform that provides investment and collection solutions for MSMEs seeking working capital.
The platform, https://www.finworks360.com/, went live in February 2021 after around 1 ½ years of rigorous market and product research, along with extensive software development. Its primary goal is to bridge the gap between eligible MSMEs seeking short-term funding and investors eager to deploy liquid funds for above-average returns and portfolio diversification.
Notably, Finworks360 aims to democratize the invoice discounting investment segment, making it accessible to a broad range of investors, including individuals, HUF, HNIs, and not just institutions.
Finworks360 offers its facilitation service platform to eligible sellers against invoices raised on high-quality debtors, including blue-chip companies with a minimum credit rating of A.
The platform places significant emphasis on credit quality and transaction structuring, prioritizing the safety of investments. To further safeguard investors’ interests, Finworks360 appointed a SEBI registered Trustee in February 2023, adding an extra layer of transparency.
Leading the charge at Finworks360 are co-founders Jeewan Kumar, Rohit Kumar Nath, and Mayank S Thareja. Jeewan Kumar, the Managing Director and CEO, boasts over 25 years of experience in strategy, credit, IT project implementation, and business restructuring.
