May 20, 2013 1 Comment
I am pleased to announce that Marqeta has seen a tremendous start to 2013. Since the start of the year, Marqeta has partnered with:
As you can see, we have made significant progress with our technology, partnerships and adoption of our +M Platform and we are thrilled to be one of the companies leading the frontier in new payments technology.
In particular, Marqeta’s relationship with Facebook showcases the +M Platform’s ability to seamlessly move the consumer-merchant relationship online-to-offline. Facebook users can now give their friends gifts to popular retailers all on one reusable gift card, the Facebook Card. Each card can hold multiple balances from various retailers and any future gifts are automatically added to the same card. You can now manage all elements of gifting, including purchasing multiple gifts, managing balances and adding funds from your mobile device, tablet or computer.
In addition to these partnerships, other exciting news include:
- Marqeta received $14 million in Series B financing from our existing investors, Greylock Partners and Granite Ventures, along with new investors, Commerce Ventures and a number of leading angel and strategic investors.
- Marqeta was named to the JMP Securities Hot 100 software companies for the second year in a row!
It’s an exciting time for the company and there’s a lot more coming down the pike. Stay tuned for more exciting news and thank you for your support!
