    CAFE SERRE | Ep.4 | Clement Mauguet from AGICAP

    Meet Clement Mauguet, co-founder and Chief of Global Expansion at Agicap, a leading cash-flow management software for SME’s founded in 2016 in Lyon, France together with Sébastien Beyet, CEO and Lucas Bertola, CTO.

    Following extensive conversations with many entrepreneurs, all 3 future founders realised that there was a huge gap in the market for a learn and real-time solution to monitor and anticipate cashflow for SME’s.

    6 years later, they operate across Europe in France, Germany & Austria, Spain, Italy, Netherlands & Belgium and most recently in UK & Ireland. They serve 5000+ customers, have grown the team to 500+, have raised $120m from leading investors and pride themselves with 4.6/5 CSAT.

    Agicap also created the free ‘Cash Academy’ providing invaluable insights and access to cash management learning and tools for entrepreneurs. https://agicap.com/fr/inscription-cash-academy/
