Disruptive start-ups to watch out for

2021 was a record-breaking year, with more businesses breaking into the billion-dollar club. Many start-ups have achieved or retained the unicorn status by the end of the year to reflect nearly a fivefold growth from that in 2020. This boom can be linked to a financing frenzy spurred by the quick adoption of technology and innovative solutions by start-ups gaining traction in response to the pandemic. However, the start-up ecosystem is now facing turbulent times for fundraising as investors seek long-term business strategies, valuations, and a route to profitability amid uncertain market circumstances. Nevertheless, 2022 has the potential to carry forward the momentum with multiple entities having a fair chance of being in the right place when aided by the right technologies. GlobalData leverages the power of alternative data to examine the health of start-ups across multiple dimensions including the quality of their innovations, market presence, and the funding they can attract. This helps our clients to analyze the disruptive potential of start-ups for early alliances, investments, and acquisition prospects to develop future-proof strategic roadmaps for a competitive advantage.

NFS Ascent for Start-ups hopes to gain asset finance and leasing industry adherents “looking to launch or grow their businesses with a quick and easy to use software-as-a-service (SaaS) package,” the company said in a statement. 

The offering “unlocks powerful configuration engines and provides comprehensive domain coverage” and “is developed and engineered to empower banks, auto, equipment, big-ticket finance and leasing companies. 

“The platform is especially catered towards the needs of start-ups to help them grow and accelerate in terms of business volume and transactions.

“The software is pre-configured but can be tailored to the customer’s needs, and supports their growth plans by allowing them to configure and unlock more features thus connecting every aspect of their business in one place. 

“They will also be able to choose a standalone or a fully integrated cloud-based solution, enabling their businesses to be streamlined and automated. 

“With the highly configurable software, Ascent for Start-ups’ pay-as-you-grow pricing model allows customers to unlock features incrementally as they scale and grow their businesses,” the IT services company said in a press release.

Johannes Riedl (pictured above), global client partner with Netsol Ascent Europe, said: “With an EU market-ready on-demand solution, Ascent for Start-ups is backed up by Netsol’s 40 years global domain expertise, built on the same high-tech framework as its flagship product NFS Ascent.”

In August, Netsol said it had secured the UK’s Allica Bank as a partner for its cloud services, the move comes as Allica is poised to unveil an asset finance division this year headed up by Richard Cameron.

The Netsol launch comes six months after UK-based rival Alfa Financial Software launched Alfa Start in March, for the UK small to medium-ticket equipment finance market, promising to deliver “the full power of Alfa Systems”, the company’s purpose-built premium product typically used by larger and more established players.
