Itouzi, a P2P lending platform, reportedly secured tens of millions of yuan in Series A financing from China Emergency Assistance Investment Co., Ltd. (CEAIC), a state-backed institution that helps companies address fundraising dilemmas (via Tech NetEase).

Different from other similar P2P platforms, Itouzi focuses on addressing the fundraising demands of companies, mainly financing guarantee institutions, or a peer-to-company (P2C) model as defined by the company.

The capital raised this time will be used in team construction and branding, according to Wang Bo, CEO of Itouzi. He noted that the cooperation between the two parties will not be restricted in capital levels. They will also share resources in other aspects in an attempt to dig out the fundraising demands in emergency assistance sector.
