This investment, the second in our new Fund IV, fits 3TS’s investment strategy perfectly. We concentrate on highly scalable technology companies with unique products. After building an innovative, functional platform for secure digital signing and automated document workflow with a leading position in Poland, Autenti is ready for international expansion to create a regional leader. This is the perfect timing for 3TS’ investment, as we have the knowledge and experience in scaling businesses into multiple markets. Autenti addresses the critical, must-have needs of process optimization for nearly 4,500 clients from various segments, which also includes implementations by the most demanding clients, such as some of the largest international banks, as well as foreign and Polish corporations. The current funding round and strategic support of investors will help Autenti accelerate its foreign expansion across the large and dynamically growing European market. The company will empower businesses to digitally transform and eliminate off-line methods of signing paper documents, as well as transition to more environmentally sustainable organizations

Thousands of small and medium-sized enterprises and numerous blue chip companies have verified Autenti's product. We believe that by combining the platform’s holistic architecture with solid team performance and executive skills in enterprise scaling, Autenti can achieve a dominant position in the competitive e-signature market. As Elevator Ventures, we identified many potential use cases with RBI, and ways in which we could help the company scale across the CEE region. RBI Group has more than 17M+ customers across 12 CEE countries and network banks where we can offer potential synergies to Autenti.
