There has been a healthy level of new funding deals closed in recent weeks. What we want to do in this post is highlight some of these. This is by no means an exhaustive list but rather an interesting mix of fintech companies who have recently raised equity and/or debt capital. Seemingly every day there is a new capital raise or two; digital banks, blockchain startups, AI companies and insurtech firms have all raised capital
The recent CB Insights Fintech Trends Briefing points to the rise in fintech financings as Q3’17 saw 278 deals to VC-backed fintech companies, the largest quarter since Q1’12. While total capital invested is down 25 percent from Q2’17 to $4bn the pace of the deals show investors appetite for fintech companies is still very strong.
