Capitolis, an Israeli fintech startup, has just hit the coveted unicorn club with a $1.6 billion valuation. It did so with a $110 million Series D round of investment co-led by top fintech investors Canapi Ventures, 9Yards Capital, and SVB Capital. A unicorn is a startup valued at $1 billion or more.
The new investment comes just a little over a year after Capitolis brought in $90 million in a Series C round of funding.
The new unicorns and big investments keep on coming for Israel Startup Nation so Capitolis is in good company. But its $1.6 billion valuation is nowhere near the $15 billion valuation that Rapyd, an Israeli fintech startup, hit last week.
