Qolo, the omnichannel payments platform for FinTech, recently announced that it has successfully closed a $15M Series A round of funding, led by The Raptor Group with additional participation from other professional investors and strategic partners.
“We experienced strong investor interest fueled by our unique value proposition and rapid pace of customer acquisition. The current FinTech climate is driving massive growth, and Qolo’s 100% cloud-native, omnichannel offering is perfectly positioned to meet the demand,” said Patricia Montesi, Qolo CEO. “And we have yet to see payments model we can’t power.”
In the past year, Qolo has tripled its staff, including C-Suite hires Chief Financial Officer, J.
