Brex raises USD 100 mln to reach USD 2.6 bln valuation

Friday 14 June 2019 | 11:42 AM CET

Y Combinator graduate corporate credit card for startups provider Brex has received USD 100 million in funding through a Series C extension.

The funding round was led by Kleiner Perkins Digital Growth Fund. The extension also has participation from existing investors, including Y Combinator Continuity, GreenOaks Capital, IVP, Ribbit Capital, and DST Global.

This takes Brex’s total equity funding to USD 315 million, with a valuation of USD 2.6 billion The company launched its product last June with USD 57 million in funding from investors such as PayPal’s founders and Y Combinator. It went on to raise a USD 125 million Series C round in October, at a valuation of USD 1.1 billion, and made its first acquisition.

Brex also raised an additional USD 100 million debt round a couple of months back with Barclays. The startup acts as an underwriter and sets credit limits based on factors such as who the start-up’s investors are, its cash balance and spending patterns – not on credit history. Startups don’t pay any fees for the first five cards, after which they pay USD 5 per month for each card. Brex also makes money from transaction fees.
