Plaid raised $44 million in a new round led by Goldman Sachs. The new funding takes the total funding to about $60M. The company’s software allows a variety of financial-technology startups to access their customers’ bank-account information
Christopher Dawe, co-head of the venture-capital and growth-equity team at Goldman Sachs Investment Partners, said those discussions were a key factor in its investment in Plaid. “It’s ultimately in the banks’ best interest to better serve their customers with data access, reduced friction and financial innovation,” said Mr. Dawe.
