Gunderson Dettmer represented client Thrive Capital as it co-led the $250 million Series D financing of Melio, an Israeli payments platform geared toward small and medium-sized US businesses. The round brings the company’s valuation to $4 billion.

In the announcement of the transaction, investor at Thrive Capital Vince Hankes said, “Melio has been a critical partner for small businesses as they navigated the financial constraints of the pandemic-induced economic downturn. For many, the ability to implement and adopt these digital payment solutions has been the key to keeping their doors open – proving that digital payment platforms are critical to small business growth.”
