Revenue at Nium rose 50%+ in 2023 compared to 2022.

Nanu continued, “This investment is proof of our global success at a time when raising money is exceptionally difficult for late-stage, venture-backed companies. Our investors believe in our long-term mission of building the payments infrastructure for on-demand money movement and this additional investment will allow us to accelerate our aspirations. We’re privileged to have this support are looking forward to working closely together with them to continue to advance our business.”
