Investment rationale

The funding will be used to expand Proximity’s sales and marketing team, build a significant presence in North America and further develop its SaaS product.

In addition to providing growth capital, our team will leverage its expertise in the digital consumer space to advise Proximity on strategic growth opportunities and support senior recruitment by providing access to its deep network of retail and technology sector professionals.
