Local fintech startup, Portify has announced it has raised £1.3m seed investment to build essential financial products for gig economy workers.

Founded by Entrepreneur First alumni, Sho Sugihara (CEO) and Chris Butcher (CTO), Portify is the first UK startup to address the financial volatility many flexible workers face.

The funding round was led by Kindred Capital and Entrepreneur First, with participation by investors in the fintech and technology sectors.

Portify offers tailored financial products, accessible via its mobile app, to help give security to workers. The app is said to connect with users’ bank accounts, so they can see and manage their day-to-day financial activity across all platforms.
