Our vision? Empower the builders of tomorrow by making business financing more accessible.

About us

Silvr provides fast, secure, and easy-to-access funding for SMBs. Pioneering advanced data-based scoring technology, Silvr supports the development of companies that want to diversify their funding sources. Since its creation in 2020, Silvr has already deployed more than €150M to hundreds of digital companies.

Our story

Silvr was founded in 2020 in France by two HEC Paris business school friends: serial entrepreneur Nima Karimi and a three-time CTO Greg Tappero. Active participants of the local entrepreneur ecosystem for many years, Nima and Greg had observed first-hand the challenges that every business faces when trying to guarantee growth and continuity. Silvr was their solution to one of the biggest of those challenges: financing.

With over 60 employees today, Silvr has built a unique financial scoring system that is based purely on precise, real-time, non-falsifiable data - which every business can connect in minutes. After the successful start in France, the company has opened its German headquarters in Berlin in January 2023. With over €330M of capital raised in equity and debt from 2020, Silvr is currently the fastest-growing digital lender in Europe.
