Stripe’s funding: Go big or go home!
I was just reading about Stripe‘s $ 80M investment today (full disclosure: Stripe is a partner of FreshBooks where I work. And we love them…). They raised $ 80M at a $ 1.75B pre-money valuation. So, what am I thinking about this?
- YCombinator has yet another company in the $B club
- Payments is super hot right now. Braintree was recently bought for $ 800M. The business of moving money around has never been hotter.
- Stripe has no choice now but to go for a unicorn size outcome. More on this point:
