Koho series D - With over 500K users KOHO closes CAD$210 million series D roundTORONTO, Feb. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KOHO Financial Inc, the rapidly growing Fintech company, announced today that it has closed a C$210 million Series D funding round. This investment was led by Eldridge, a holding company headquartered in Greenwich, Connecticut with a network of businesses across finance, entertainment, and technology, with renewed commitments from existing investors Drive Capital and TTV Capital. Additional investments were made by HOOPP, Round13, and BDC.

Eberhard continued, “We’re passionate about our mission and that has resonated with Canadians.

That’s a wonderful thing to be a part of.”

“We’re very excited to partner with KOHO.
