Early-stage investment firm SucSEED Angel Network and International Institute of Information Technology-Hyderabad’s IIIT Seed Fund marked their exit from Paymatrix.
“The early investment from SucSEED Angel Network has helped the Hyderabad-based fintech firm to grow its presence into strengthening its value proposition beyond the target segment of credit cardholders,” the investors said in a joint statement.
Hyderabad-headquartered Paymatrix, an end-to-end digital rent management platform, is owned and operated by Speckle Internet Solutions Pvt Ltd. The firm was founded in November 2016 by Anusha Kurupathi Parambil, Muralidhar Nayak and Mukesh Chandra Anchuri.
The company provides an analytics-driven property rent management platform that streamlines property rental payments and collections for tenants, landlords and property managers.
