EmergeVest, a Hong Kong-based growth-oriented private equity investment group, has invested in Lucy, a neobank focused on women entrepreneurs, through seed funding. In addition, Dr Jessica Bruser of EmergeVest has joined Lucy’s board of directors.
Lucy will use the proceeds of this funding round to invest in its tech platform, expand its Singapore-based team and prepare for an imminent launch of its inaugural product, before expanding regionally through strategic partnerships.
Diversity and inclusion are a fundamental part of the culture and long-term strategy at EmergeVest. This investment, which allows Lucy to further support female entrepreneurs, is aligned with EmergeVest’s goals and values.
Jessica Bruser, Director of EmergeVest, says: “We are delighted to partner with Debbie and the Lucy team on their journey to provide financial services and opportunities for women entrepreneurs.
