Otta's take on Lithic

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Lithic has developed a fast and simple card-issuing API that allows developers to create and monitor payment cards - physical and virtual - and the transactions that take place on them. Its expanding list of use cases includes on-demand services, vertical SaaS, and alternative lending, meaning its product spans a promising and exciting remit of growing sectors.

Lithic began as, helping customers keep their transactions private and secure through generating disposable, virtual payment card numbers. The significant uptake prompted a pivot of service to corporate customers and the card-issuing API (although continues as a subsidiary), and this savvy strategy has seen notable success as the appetite for fintech solutions continues to grow.

The company has raised impressive rounds of funding to continue developing its platform and its B2B direction. It will need this to keep its edge over larger competitors like Galileo and Marqueta - that is, to maintain its more modern infrastructure, and therefore its appealingly agile functionality for its early-stage startup customers.

Total funding - $163.4m
