It was not that long ago that we announced our investment in Finix, a company in the financial technology market making it possible for any company to become a payments company through a flexible, API-based platform of record. Since our initial seed investment and the Series A financing last year, Finix has built a reputation as the go-to team and solution in the industry. Recently, the company announced both its Series B financing and the subsequent addition of former U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Penny Pritzker, to the Board.
We’ve been investing in financial technology startups for many years and when we met Richie and Sean we were convinced they saw a massive market opportunity everyone else was overlooking. More importantly, we saw a founding team that was both intentional and authentic about its values — Open, Honest, and Direct. That type of integrity — in addition to the tremendous business opportunity, product and team — is exactly why we couldn't be more excited to continue our work with the entire Finix team to build the future of payments. If you’re interested in the future of payments as well, consider joining the team!
