"Brex is perfect for online brands, because it offers financial flexibility and high-quality software without a personal guarantee."
- Aaron Hoey, CEO
Amour Vert is a sustainable clothing company based in San Francisco. Their name translates to ‘Green Love’ and the company works every day to create a healthier planet. Amour Vert works directly with mills to pioneer new fabrics that are soft, beautiful, durable, and of course, sustainable-- and everything is made in limited quantities to ensure the highest production standard and eliminate excess waste.
The brand mission was clear. Demand was rising. And traditional financing options didn’t seem to understand. “The lenders we were reviewing were, first of all, very expensive, minimum 20% interest,” said Dmitri Litin, Amour Vert’s Controller, “and the structure of the loans didn’t match our cashflow management needs.”
As the search continued, Dmitri came upon Brex, and was immediately interested. “60-day float is unheard period, let alone with zero interest. And on top of that, the highest limit of any card we’d considered. We sort of didn’t believe it. ”
After one phone call with Brex’s ecommerce specialists, Dmitri and his CEO, Aaron Hoey, realized that the “hidden catch” they had feared wasn’t coming.
The team completed their application in under 10 minutes, had a working virtual card three minutes later, and had shifted all of their digital ad spending to Brex within a few days.
“We never have to worry about hitting a limit, and the insight we have into our payment schedule allows us to easily forecast and spend more time on our acquisition strategy. For us, Brex is peace of mind, and I never thought I’d say that about any finance product.”
