We founded Fluid with the purpose of bringing together the data and resources necessary to improve business cash flow. To answer the question, "when will I get paid," and to solve the problem, "I need to get paid today."

So what's Fluid?
Cash flow is the most important, yet often most ignored, metric. It’s your rent, the food on your table, the way you provide for your team, their families. Even after years of payments innovation, cash flow is determined by the same net-payments deposited weeks, or months, after the work has been completed. Today you have a new option and we're excited to share it with you.
Say hello to Fluid - a better way to get paid.
Fluid is a new way to interact with your cash flow, built on modern technology with the promise of controlling your payments on your terms. A virtual payment manager built to get you paid faster and secure your cash flow with advances available on each approved invoice.
We wanted to create an application that solved real business problems. We've tackled net payment terms head on, developing an easier way for you to get paid on your own schedule. Each invoice shared through Fluid has the opportunity to be advanced once approved by your client.
We also know that small businesses have a harder time receiving financial products, so we changed the way our software determines financial strength. Advances have never been more accessible. We auto-approve our partners to receive our advance product, using their (often) more credit-worthy clients as the approving factor for any advance. We then extend their client's creditworthiness to our partners, dramatically reducing the cost for any advance transaction.
We still wanted to add more value.
So most of our time was spent addressing fundamental payment problems, creating a workflow that has improved our average user's time to collect payment by 22 days. This is the heart of the Fluid experience. The more you use Fluid, the less likely you are to take an advance.
There's still an extensive feature set to be rolled out over the next few months including the next generation of our reporting suite. We're hard at work building a future where Fluid is the catalyst to effortless cash flow management. Stay tuned.
Who made Fluid?
We are a team of developers, designers and finance geeks who faced our own cash flow problem while running an independent software consultancy. We had the opportunity to solve our own problem. We took on the challenge and created Fluid.
We understood early that starting a financial service from scratch would be ambitious. From the start, were incubated by Mucker Lab, a leading accelerator, where we released our Beta product in the summer of 2015. We've since grown with great advisors from companies, including: Green Dot, Wallaby, Airbnb, and Lending Home, along with investment from some of the best angels and institutions.
This is just the beginning for Fluid. We would love to have you along for the journey.
