The energy of Kratos, our blockchain enabled Trade, Trade Finance and Supply Chain Finance platform, is channelled through these Lands, unobstructed, to benefit our customers:
To be a leading fintech innovator, globally benefiting Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in the supply chain.
To create value by providing a sustainable, digital, and comprehensive marketplace for the world’s MSME supply chain participants and those who finance them.
We will design, engineer and nurture an elegant and intuitive, sustainable and comprehensive, digital marketplace for the world’s MSMEs and supply chain partners who help to finance them.

Kratos is our custom-built, blockchain-enabled, end-to-end global trade and trade finance platform. It meets the needs of both traders (buyers & suppliers) and financing sources like alternative lenders.
It took two years to develop Kratos and we launched it in June 2019 with the Trade Discovery module and added additional modules like Trade Finance in February 2020.
Kratos was immediately established and saw high usage from the first year itself.
One of the world’s largest digital financing platforms, Kratos directly connects MSMEs with lenders online and source capital across commodity trading, supply chain, logistics, and ecommerce finance.
Kratos’s success showcased that we were able to combine our experience in technology development with our intimate knowledge of the trade and trade finance space to create a leading online digital marketplace.
