A note on Wildcard’s $7 Million Series A round

Posted on August 5, 2014. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Last week Wildcard raised a $7 Million Series A round. We had about half of the initial $3M we raised in the bank when we did this, but we’re confident we’re going in the right direction and this additional capital enables us to grow our incredible team and build the future we see without hesitation. I thought about calling Techcrunch with “the story” but the reality is raising money isn’t a story in and of itself. When you try our products, both consumer and business facing, if they change your life…which I believe they will…that will be a story worth writing about. I feel very fortunate to have investors who believe in us enough to more than double down on Wildcard, and I’m really proud of our incredible team that built the product and technology that emboldened them to push a fresh $7 Million into a prelaunch company building into in a market coveted and controlled by giants.

In summary…we haven’t accomplished what we’ve set out to accomplish…but we’re onto something…and now we’ve got ~$8.5M to continue working our asses off to chase it down…see you in September.

Oh…and if you’re a merchant or publisher…or really anyone with an online presence and want to see your brand in highly performant, native cards…check this out and send a note for the early hookup.

    About

    I’m a NYC based entrepreneur. I think there is one metric that can be used to measure the value of a human life and that’s impact. How did you change things? How many people did you touch? How different is the world because you lived in it and how positive was the change that you affected? (p.s. i don’t use spell check…deal with it) You can email me at Jordan.Cooper@gmail.com
