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.
Triterras was founded in 2018 by Srinivas Koneru. Though the company was incorporated then, the idea inception and development for Kratos, our flagship platform, started in 2017.
We began work on Kratos to address the large trade finance gap for the world’s micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and to help streamline and digitize the trading processes. 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.
Triterras is a global fintech company co-headquartered in Singapore and Dubai, and a leading innovator of inclusive finance solutions for MSMEs.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Triterras Inc., Triterras FinTech Pte. Ltd. is a Singapore-registered FinTech Company certified by the Singapore FinTech Association as a trade and supply chain finance provider.
We also have presence in 4 other countries, namely Australia, Switzerland, UK and the USA.
Triterras has been consistently profitable from inception and in slightly over a year since launching Kratos, we have facilitated more than 3,500 transactions and over $6.6 Billion in transaction volume (as of June 2020).
Triterras believes that small contributions can cumulatively add up to make a larger impact.
In 2018, we committed to planting trees to create awareness of environmental protection.
Through our “Tree Planting Day” efforts, it is estimated that all the trees we planted will absorb/sequester an average of 9,640kg of carbon dioxide annually. We plan on continuing these efforts.
