US-based fintech startup NovoPayment has raised $19m in a Series A funding round led by Fuel Venture Capital and IDC Ventures.
The fintech will use the proceeds to expand its banking-as-a-service (BaaS) to serve more financial institutions, fintechs, neobanks and digital merchants.
It also aims to increase capabilities, update its product portfolio, and bolster security to capitalise on the growth opportunities in the US and countries in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC).
NovoPayment offers a full-stack API cloud-based platform that powers digital banking, payment and card solutions.
Additionally, as part of the expansion plans, NovoPayment is enhancing its network of partners and hiring over 100 engineers, business development, and product experts.
NovoPayment co-founder and CEO Anabel Perez said: “Expanding access to financial services, offering new digital experiences, increasing speed to market, and reducing IT costs all comes down to infrastructure.
