Venture capital fund that invests globally in early stage companies who are aiming to disrupt financial services.
Ribbit Capital is a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm that invests globally in unique individuals and brands who aim to disrupt the financial services industry. Founded in 2012 by Meyer “Micky” Malka, Ribbit believes the category is profoundly under-innovated and intends to support entrepreneurs who have already launched the businesses of the future. Ribbit has raised an inaugural $100M fund that will be aimed at driving innovation in lending, payments, insurance, accounting, tax preparation and personal financial management. Ribbit targets disruptive, early stage companies that leverage technology to reimagine and reinvent what financial services can be for people and businesses. The firm will mainly focus on investments in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain, South Africa and Turkey. Ribbit is backed by a variety of institutional investors including Spanish banking group Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentina SA, Silicon Valley Bank and numerous high-net-worth individuals.
