Mazanti-Andersen advises Avid Ventures and General Catalyst on its investment in payroll platform Pento

Copenhagen and London-based Pento has raised USD 35 million in a Series B funding co-led by Avid Ventures and Tiger Global Management. Avid Ventures is an early stage New York-based VC firm investing in fintech, consumer internet, and software companies. American venture capital firm General Catalyst also participated in the round alongside Point Nine, LocalGlobe/Latitude, Seedcamp, Moonfire Ventures among others. The round comes six months after Pento raised USD 15.6 million in a Series A round led by General Catalyst.

The real-time automated payroll software platform, founded by Jonas Bøgh Larsen and Emil Hagbarth Rasmussen in 2016, targets the error-prone use of spreadsheets, PDFs and emails and provides employers with cloud-based tools and real-time calculations that generate greater transparency when it comes to payroll.

Pento will use the funding to accelerate its product development.
