Why we backed up Pismo

We are very excited to invest in Pismo. We believe they have a very talented team uniquely positioned to reinvent the technology behind banking, payments, fintech, and commercial transactions. The founders are outstanding and have great ambitions to make Pismo a truly global company.

Alex Szapiro

Head of Brazil and Operating Partner at SoftBank Group International.

We believe Pismo is the foundational fintech platform for LATAM, and now with a new influx of funding, the rest of the world. LATAM is in the early innings of its unprecedented fintech revolution and we’re thrilled to support Pismo in enabling more innovative services and greater financial inclusion in the region, as well as taking its core banking and payments capabilities far and wide.

Ethan Choi

Partner at Accel

Pismo’s core infrastructure will innovate how LatAm financial institutions and fintechs serve their customers and democratize access to money, spurring a positive impact on the broader productivity and prosperity of consumers and businesses. We’ve been thrilled to support Ricardo and Daniela through the continued growth and scale of Pismo; they have built an incredible product and team through their tenacity, innovation and grit.

Mathias Schilling

Managing Partner at Headline

We invest in Pismo because we rarely find such a talented and complementary team of experienced entrepreneurs, who have already founded a major company, and are returning to the same sector to redefine the infrastructure of two of the biggest industries in the world: banking and payments.

Romero Rodrigues

Venture Capitalist at Redpoint eventures

Our early investments in iconic companies like Square and Plaid, gave us a ringside view into the Fintech revolution they helped kickstart in the US and we believe Pismo has a similar opportunity in Latam and beyond. We at PruVen Capital are excited about the opportunity to partner with the Pismo team to achieve this mission and look forward to leveraging our deep domain, network and our LP, Prudential Financial's ecosystem to help in any way we can.
