Point-of-sale mortgage startup cloudvirga nabs $15m

Point-of-sale mortgage company cloudvirga has raised $15m in a Series B round.

The funding for the Irvine, California-based startup comes from Blackstone Group portfolio company Incenter.

Cloudvirga’s core product is its cloud-based intelligent mortgage platform (iMP) designed to automate the initial disclosures process to offer mortgages more quickly for borrowers and lenders.

The point-of-sale system reduces the cost for lenders by moving traditional back-office tasks to the front of the loan process.

The new capital will be used to support cloudvirga as it scales its technology and expands its product offerings.

Company co-founder Kyle Kamrooz said: “Unprecedented mortgage regulation has exacerbated an already labour-intensive lending process and inconsistent consumer experience, making our solution more viable than ever.

“We are thrilled to have the support of such a well-respected group of investors and look forward to continuing to shake up an antiquated industry process.”

Launched in 2016 cloudvirga has since partnered with several mega and mid-tier lenders and claims to have processed more than $15bn in loans.

The company previously raised a $7.5m Series A round in July led by Dallas Capital Management.
