Otta's take on Mercury

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Mercury was founded after its co-founders were fed up with the traditional banking services offered to entrepreneurs, which were static, low-technology, and had heavy fees. It solves this problem by automating business payment processes and offering FDIC-insured accounts, all with full API access.

Unlike most traditional startup banking services, it offers free versions to entrepreneurs and doesn't earn revenue through premium accounts. The monthly revenue from Mercury's biggest clients compensates for the lack of revenue from smaller companies.

Up to now, startup banking has been one of the least innovative industries, but Mecurity is disrupting the sector. It already has 100,000 businesses using its platform, and hit unicorn status with a $1 billion valuation in 2021. Mercury is adding to its team and building more products as it aims to continue to take the market by storm.

Total funding - $150.9m
