前SoFi掌门人再度创业,计划融资2500万美元

据Recode报道,前SoFi创始人Mike Cagney已经开始接洽相关投资人,计划重新建立一家金融科技企业,计划融资目标2500万美元。

新企业的启动资金部分来自Cagney自己,其他潜在的投资人可能还包括Twitter创始人Peter Thiel、SoFi投资方(DCM Ventures、中国的人人公司等)。此外有消息称,Cagney还在与华尔街银行和多个金融科技投资人基础,希望得到更多意见。

据悉,Cagney将与妻子June Ou共同建立这家新金融科技创企。

目前企业名称还没有确定,不过Ou的领英页面显示,她将担任新公司的COO。有消息人士透露,这家新企业可能主要专注于房屋净值贷款领域(home equity lines of credit,简称HELOC)。

新公司选址旧金山,不过技术团队则会在波兹曼市。

虽然这2500万美元的启动资金还未完全到位,但是鉴于Cagney在SoFi创建和运营方面的成绩,投资人对这家新企业应该也是信心十足。

Mike Cagney, the SoFi founder who was ousted from the company three months ago after allegations of sexual harassment, is already working on his next move.

According to Recode, Cagney has recently been approaching investors about a new FinTech startup, looking to raise around $25 million.

While some of the initial money will come directly from Cagney, sources familiar with the matter said he has spoken to potential investors, such as Peter Thiel, along with other SoFi backers, including DCM Ventures and Renren. People also said Cagney has approached Wall Street banks and multiple FinTech investors for advice.

Cagney is starting the new company with his wife, June Ou, who was SoFi’s chief technology officer before she stepped down in September after her husband’s departure.

The company does not have a name yet, but Ou’s LinkedIn page says she will serve as the COO of a “#newCo.” Sources said the company is focused on home equity lines of credit (HELOC), and earlier this month Ou shared a job posting on Glassdoor for engineers.

“We are launching a new FinTech-focused company in the credit enablement space with the mission of leveraging blockchain, AI and advanced analytics to unlock new access points for consumer credit products that can transform the financial lives of our users,” said the job listing. “We are a group of passionate innovators and serial entrepreneurs with a proven track record of creating billions of dollars in value in the FinTech space.”

The company will be based in downtown San Francisco; however, the engineering jobs are based in Bozeman, Montana, near where some of the SoFi engineering team is located.

Although Cagney hasn’t reached his $25 million goal yet, investors are likely to support his new endeavor after the success he had with SoFi, which is now worth almost $5 billion.
