Citi Ventures has made a strategic investment in Kansas City-based working capital marketplace C2FO. Terms of the arrangement have not been disclosed.

Citi's venture fund joins the likes of Temasek and Union Square Ventures as backers of C2FO, which operates a market where suppliers and buyers negotiate prices based on when invoices will be paid.
