Sy family of SM Group backs PH fintech

news August 2021

What: Sy family joined a USD 1.6 million investment round in NextPay, a Filipino financial technology startup that allows small businesses to access banking services normally reserved for large companies.

Why it is important: With a pay-per-use model, low fees and fast processing, NextPay lets micro and small businesses use financial services such as digital invoicing, cash management, and batch payments to any bank or e-wallet in the country.

“This investment supports our goal of putting the power of big banks in the hands of small businesses,” NextPay CEO and co-founder Don Pansacola said in a statement.

NextPay chief experience officer and co-founder Aldrich Tan said the company would roll out new products, including corporate cards, loans, and “integration with other platforms” focused on smaller businesses.
