This week, Digitzs, a modern and disruptive global payments API, was named number one on CNBC’s Top 50 Crowdfinance Index, powered by Crowdnetic, with over $7 Million in commitments. The Index notably tracks real-time capital commitments received by the top 50 private U.S. companies through securities-based crowdfunding sites.
As previously reported, Digitzs’ product was “developed by pros from Visa, PayPal and Kount, [and] the solution exploits weaknesses in legacy payment systems. The solution targets merchants who don’t swipe cards or use shopping carts – a trillion dollar market growing at 15% per year.”
In terms of traction, Digitzs has:
- Secured $1 billion in 2015 processing commitments from merchants
- Brought in a top-notch management team that includes Head of Apple and Visa Payments, CFO of PayPal, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Kount, and more
Digitzs is currently seeking funds on Crowdfunder, and the company has claimed to raise more money than any female founder in equity crowdfunding platform’s history. Crowdfunder’s president, Steven McClurg, stated:
“Digitzs CEO and Founder, Laura Wagner, is an innovative leader with grit, hustle, and intellect. She is driven to deliver near-term value for her investors, customers and co-founders.”
Co-founder of Digitzs, Linda Perry, commented:
“As the former head of Acquiring at Visa for 17 years, I am familiar with virtually every payment processor in the U.S., from small to large and everything in between. Digitzs has the most disruptive platform and business model I’ve seen to date.”
“Virtually 100% of Digitzs’ startup funding thus far has come from team members, family, friends and the crowd. As we bring this round to a successful close, we look forward to delivering unprecedented value back to our customers, investors and team.”
