40SEAS - About Us

Our mission

We’re a mission-driven fintech startup focused on modernizing cross-border trade finance, an industry that’s long overdue for disruption and in dire need of much more than just a facelift.

Innovation at the intersection of fintech and --the global supply chain

Backed by industry leaders, 40Seas is a best-in-class financial services platform built to bring B2B payments and cross-border trade financing into the digital era.
We use data-driven technology to facilitate and streamline cross-border trade finance, and offer a new breed of solutions that make it faster, cheaper, and easier for small and medium-size importers and exporters to get access to working capital.

By providing flexible payment terms tailored for international commerce - without reliance on legacy financial institutions - 40Seas empowers businesses to increase sales, improve cash flow, and accelerate growth.
40Seas is backed by Team8, a global venture group that builds and backs technology companies in the fields of cyber, data, digital health and fintech.

Team8 Managing Partners Yuval Tal (founder of NASDAQ-listed Borderfree and Payoneer) and Rakafet Russak-Aminoach (former CEO of Leumi Bank, Israel’s largest retail bank) serve as 40Seas board members.

We’re looking for talented people

40Seas was founded by industry experts from three different countries, with dozens of years of experience in cross-border payments, logistics and trade-financing. Headquartered in Tel Aviv with offices in New York City, Toronto, and Shenzhen, 40Seas is always on the lookout for top talent around the globe to join our fast-growing team.
