New Delhi: Fintech software-as-a-service (SaaS) startup Lentra on Monday closed its Series B funding round, having raised $60 million led by existing investors Bessemer Venture Partners and SIG Venture Capital with participation from Citi Ventures.

“We see a massive opportunity for ourselves in the retail assets and business banking areas worldwide. At the same time, our clients see us as a source of competitive advantage for their business. Ten-fold revenue growth and some of the biggest retail banks as our clients now, act as markers of our solution architecture. I am excited that our investors see the same opportunity and are confident of our ability to execute," said D Venkatesh, founder & CEO, Lentra.

The four-year-old startup is one of the fastest growing enterprise SaaS companies in India, empowering banks to embrace fully digital processes. Lentra Lending Cloud offers ready to-use third party API connectors to various data sources that banks crave to hook into.

Several types of pre-configured loan journeys for originations, Loan management system, cutting-edge customer intelligence and a no-code Business rules engine (BREx ) constitute some significant modules for clients to use out of the box. Clients can choose to use all or some of these modules as per their requirements.
