Financing for entrepreneurs have been the same for decades. Let’s change this.
Traditional finance hasn’t kept up with innovation: the funding process for SME SaaS companies is antiquated, hard to access, time-consuming and tedious.
That's why at Float, we pioneered a new product we like to call Capital-as-a-Service (CaaS) – providing SaaS start–ups and SMEs with fast, easy access to founder–friendly, non–dilutive growth capital with total flexibility, where Founders can take the capital they need when they need it.

Cedric started Float with the intention of changing the way SMEs access capital. As an entrepreneur, he was frustrated with how antiquated the whole process was and went on a mission to provide founder-friendly capital. Previously, he was on the founding team of a beverage startup called Harmless Harvest in San Francisco, which now has 140 staff. Before his entrepreneurial endeavours, Cedric worked for more than 10+ years in investment banking between, New York, London and Geneva. He also competed in the Olympics in Alpine Skiing. Cedric holds a bachelor of science degree in Finance from Boston College.
Jannis joined Float in 2021 to combine his professional passions: B2B and finance in a start-up environment. Previously, he had worked for six years as CEO and CFO at the Swedish B2B retail-tech subscription scale-up Looklet. Before that, he worked at BCG in Germany and the U.S. for six years. Jannis holds a Finance Masters from WHU Beisheim School of Management and an MPA from Harvard Kennedy School where he tutored advanced risk management and finance. He is a passionate sailor (both cruising and hydrofoiling) and lives near Stockholm with his wife and his daughter.
