New York-based Braavo is an on-demand financing platform for mobile app businesses. The platform, which automates the financing process, uses real-time business data to offer two credit products based off of current and future earnings.

Braavo’s other finance option uses algorithms to track and analyse performance in real time, to offer the right funding the company needs.

Their unique approach of using real-time business data to deliver affordable financing and targeted insights is transformative — both for the founders with whom they work and the tech investment industry as a whole.”

Braavo’s business intelligence analytics tool, which aims to boost revenue of mobile apps, is free until the end of 2018.
