韩国支付创企Toss获8000万美元融资

本周,韩国公司支付应用程序Toss的母公司Viva Republica宣布获得8000万美元融资,企业估值也达到11亿美元。

本次投资由Kleiner Perkins和Ribbit Capital领投,Altos Ventures、Bessemer Venture Partners、Goodwater Capital、KTB Network、Novel、PayPal和Qualcomm Ventures在内的现有投资者跟投。

继6月融资4000万美元之后,新一轮融资使公司的总融资额达到1.96亿美元。

Toss于2015年推出,已经逐渐由初期的P2P转账服务平台拓展为一个全金融服务平台,并与25家金融服务公司建立了合作关系。除了汇款,用户还可以访问应用程序中的一系列消费者金融服务,包括金融报表、信用评分管理、定制贷款/保险计划以及多种投资服务。

Toss创始人SG LEE在接受TechCrunch采访时表示,希望将Toss打造成为金融机构的基础平台,成为金融服务界的“亚马逊”。

目前,已经有超过20%的韩国人在使用这项服务。此外,Toss也开始寻找在邻近的东南亚市场进行国际扩张的机会。

Viva Republica, the firm behind South Korea's wildly successful payments app Toss, has raised an $80 million round, valuing the firm at $1.1 billion.

The latest tranche of investment was led by Kleiner Perkins and Ribbit Capital, with participation from existing investors including Altos Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, Goodwater Capital, KTB Network, Novel, PayPal and Qualcomm Ventures

The new round brings the company's total funding to $196 million, following a $40 million raise in June.

Started as a P2P money transfer service in 2015, Toss has now expanded into a platform providing a full suite of financial services from a partner network of 25 financial services companies. Beyond money transfers, users can access an array of consumer finance services within the app, including a financial dashboard, credit score management, customised loan/insurance plans, as well as multiple investment services.

Speaking to TechCrunch, Toss founder SG LEE says: “We want to help financial institutions to build on top of Toss… we’re kind of building an Amazon for the financial services industry."

With more than 20% of Koreans already using the service, Toss is now looking at opportunities for international expansion into neighbouring South East Asian markets.
