Amir Goldman, Founder and Managing Director, Susquehanna Growth Equity, said, “Integrated Receivables is an $11-billion market in the early stages of adoption. We love backing bootstrapped companies like HighRadius, which has never raised outside funding, has grown at a 70 percent CAGR, and continues to be cash-flow positive.”
