Mobile and Online Payments Space Continues to Explode
October 18, 2012
Mobile and online payments companies have become a force to be reckoned with in the last several years, and they just keep the venture capital flowing. Since 2009, a whopping 207 investors have participated in 171 VC financings for companies in the mobile and online payments space, according to the PitchBook Platform. Accel Partners, First Round Capital and SV Angel have been the most active investors, with five investments apiece. This year has already surpassed 2011 in terms of deal count, and it's a mere $3.9 million away from equaling the total capital invested last year.
