Silverfin, a startup out of Ghent, Belgium (of all places) that offers a “connected accounting platform” to help businesses stay on top of their financial data, has picked up $4.5 million in Series A funding. Index Ventures led the round, with participation from existing investors, while the cash injection will be used to expand the team and build out the company’s international presence, starting with the U.K. Founded in 2013, Silverfin’s platform plugs into popular accounting software and other financial data sources to help finance departments, accountancy firms and consultants, such as external tax specialists, get much better real-time visibility of a company’s financial data. Or another way to describe it might be “Salesforce for financial data,” since stakeholders can communicate via the platform, too.
