One Irish-American “fintech” company just closed a Pre-IPO financing . . .
Raising $650 million from venture capital firm Sequoia and others.
Stripe (private) is one of the hottest financial technology or fintech companies in Silicon Valley.
Stripe is a fintech that provides a simple solution allowing websites and apps to collect credit card payments.
The technology was developed by two brothers from Ireland in 2010. At the time, it was difficult for websites to implement a shopping cart and accept payments.
The simplicity of Stripe has made it a thriving fintech company. And the company is benefiting from a 44% growth in e-commerce sales in the U.S. last year.
This $650 million Pre-IPO financing values the entire company at $95 billion.
That’s a 163% increase from the valuation one year ago (click here for urgent details).
Stripe is now the second most valuable private company in the world. ByteDance is the only company worth more than Stripe. TikTok is currently valued at $140 billion.
Additionally, Stripe is now more valuable than many financial giants:
- CME Group: $70 billion
- PNC Financial: $74 billion
- US Bancorp: $79 billion
- S&P Global: $84 billion
- Blackstone: $89 billion
Investors flooded into the deal – paying a premium for a Pre-IPO stake in Stripe.
Key investors included Allianz, Fidelity Investments, Sequoia Capital and Ireland’s National Treasury Management Agency.
Meanwhile, previous Stripe investors include Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk, Peter Thiel and Google’s (NASDAQ: GOOG) venture capital firm.
Private companies are rushing to raise millions – right before going public.
Typically, these Pre-IPO deals are only open to big VC firms and Wall Street investors. And typically, they’re off limits to regular folks like us.
However, I recently discovered a little-known secret . . .
Allowing YOU to secure a stake in a private company that’s preparing to go public.
In fact, some of the most attractive Pre-IPOs are in the booming electric vehicle space. And one of these private companies plans to IPO this spring.
One unknown EV battery stock could deliver huge gains AFTER the IPO.
This next-generation battery can be fully charged in just 15 minutes flat. Plus, it’s non-flammable and completely safe.
This EV tech is already earning +$100 million in sales. And the company expects that to grow to over $2.3 billion in a few years.
This PRIVATE company is quietly preparing to IPO. Today is your chance to scoop up Pre-IPO shares before it goes public.
Yours in Wealth,
