Neat, a Hong Kong-based fintech startup has announced in a press statement that it has raised US$4 million in a Series A extension round.
The startup notes that the round of funding was mainly subscribed by existing investors who are Mutual Ventures, the investment arm of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company, Pacific Century Group, Linear Capital, and angel investor Robby Hilkowitz.
Vectr Fintech, a Hong Kong-based early-stage venture firm, also participated in the round according to the statement.
