(Toronto – May 10, 2022) – Paidiem Payment Solutions Inc. (Paidiem, or the “Company”), an emerging leader in end-to-end solutions for the contingent workforce ecosystem, proudly announces that it has closed an oversubscribed seed financing round. The investment was led by GreenSky Capital Inc., through the GreenSky Accelerator Fund IV, with participation from NevCaut Ventures and strategic angel investors, including members of the GreenSky President’s Club.
The Company, with customers across Canada and the U.S., plans to expand its customer base and double its current workforce in the coming year. In addition to hiring talent to support its growth, Paidiem will also enhance its existing offerings and develop new products and services.
“This round of financing advances Paidiem’s mission to provide employers who hire contingent workers with leadingedge technology and financial solutions to best attract, manage and retain their top talent,” CEO and founder, Richard Cromie said. “As the workforce accelerates towards ‘on-demand’ employment, attracting and retaining contingent labour is more important now than ever. This round of funding allows us to expand our on-demand payment and financing options for both the employers and their workforce.”
As part of the seed financing announcement, Paidiem is also pleased to announce a new credit partnership that provides the Company with access to over $100 million to support its customers’ financing needs. The credit facility will accelerate Paidiem’s growth by providing “income on-demand” for contingent workers and revenue-based financing alternatives for their staffing agency employers.

Richard has assembled a top-notch team that knows the market they are selling into backwards and forwards.”
