Supply chain finance company Twinco Capital announced it has landed $53 million (€50 million) in debt financing. The funds come from BBVA’s BBVA Spark. The funds boost Twinco Capital’s total combined debt and equity funding to $71.3 million.
The Spain-based company offers financing to suppliers of large corporations working in retail and apparel. To help free up working capital, Twinco advances up to 60% of the order value within 48 hours after the retailer places the order. Twinco then pays the remaining percentage after the goods have been delivered. The company leverages business performance and ESG data combined with machine learning to assess and mitigate risk, therefore minimizing losses.
“The value added Twinco is providing to customers stems from the combination of its unique funding solution with business intelligence that provides a holistic overview of supply chain risk,” said Twinco COO Carmen Marin. “Technology and machine learning provide invaluable data insights on commercial, financial and ESG suppliers’ performance, giving our customers a state-of-the-art supply chain risk management tool.”
BBVA Spark was launched in 2022 as an investment arm to provide venture debt and growth loans to what it calls “high-impact” companies. The firm currently has more than 800 clients and has facilitated $265 million (€250 million) in financing.
Launched in 2019, Twinco has received equity funds from Quona Capital, Working Capital Fund, Mundi Ventures, and Finch Capital. The company works with more than 150 suppliers located across 13 different countries. Twinco has grown 3x in the past four years.
“We are very pleased to support Sandra and Carmen, two entrepreneurs who, with Twinco, have reinvented the way supply chains are financed on a global scale and who have also incorporated innovative environmental and social criteria into their supplier financing model,” said BBVA Spark Head Roberto Albaladejo.
