英国金融创企Azimo获2000万美元C轮融资,乐天领投

近日,欧洲数字汇款服务商Azimo完成2000万美元C轮融资。该融资轮由乐天集团旗下乐天资本领投,e.ventures、Frog Capital、GR Capital Partners、Greycroft Partners、MCI、Quona Capital、Silicon Valley Bank参投。

C轮融资使Azimo筹资总资金超5000万美元。目前,全球跨境支付市场市值约为6000亿美元,且仍在不断增长。

Azimo首席执行官Michael Kent表示:"能巩固与乐天资本的关系,我们十分高兴。本次募得资金将主要用于升级服务,保持用户群高速增长。我们的主要关注点在欧洲这一全球最大、最为多样也长期未开发的转账市场。"

乐天任事股东Oskar Mielczarek de la Miel补充道:"我们持续为Azimo的使命、团队与执行力所打动。Azimo有着业内最佳的技术,其业务带动了高速增长与效率。自我们与Azimo合作后,其获客成本降低了三分之二。最新融资轮将在12个月内使该公司实现持续盈利。"

Azimo已搭建了全球平台,使得全球190多个国家的50多亿用户可利用现金、银行账户与移动钱包等多种支付手段完成80多个币种的转账与支付。

European digital money-transfer service Azimo has closed on a $20 million Series C investment round led by Japan's Rakuten Capital, the investment arm of Rakuten Inc. with e.ventures, Frog Capital, GR Capital Partners, Greycroft Partners, MCI, Quona Capital and Silicon Valley Bank also participating.

The Series C funding round also results in the total amount of equity investment raised by Azimo to over $50 million, and Azimo is adding to the global cross-border payments market that is worth $600 billion and is continuously growing.

“We’re excited to strengthen further our relationship with Rakuten Capital. This financing will be used to make our service even better and to sustain the rapid growth in our customer base. We’re keeping our focus primarily on Europe - the largest, most diverse and chronically underserved money transfer market in the world," Azimo’s CEO Michael Kent said.

Oskar Mielczarek de la Miel, Managing Partner at Rakuten Capital added: "We continue to be impressed by Azimo’s mission, team and executional prowess. Azimo has the best technology in the sector, and the business is delivering rapid growth and efficiency. Customer acquisition costs have dropped by two-thirds since we first got involved with Azimo. This latest funding will comfortably bring the business to sustained profitability within 12 months.”

Azimo have built a global platform that enables payments in more than 80 currencies to more than 190 receiving countries and more than 5 billion potential customers via a wide variety of payout methods, including cash, bank deposits and mobile wallets.
