“We have a clear vision of what we need to do to achieve our goals over the next three years,” added Olivier Placca, Deputy CEO. “Our teams, our shareholders and our partners are all aligned and committed to our mission.”
Tinubu Square intends to use the additional €15M of capital to target high growth international markets for Credit Insurance and Surety software.

“The Tinubu team has performed incredibly well over the last few years,” said Vincent Fleury, Tinubu Board Member and a Partner of Long Arc Capital. “The business is now poised to become the market-leading enabler of digital transformations for the Credit and Surety Insurance industries. With this additional capital, we expect Tinubu will achieve new levels of success in the U.S. as well as in the rest of the world.”
