Square Partners With Starbucks, Raises $25M For Series D - TechCrunch

Square Partners With Starbucks, Raises $25M For Series D - TechCrunch | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

It might not be the funding announcement we've been hearing rumors about, but today Square announced that they've partnered with Starbucks. Beginning this fall, Square will begin processing all U.S. credit and debit card transactions at participating Starbucks stores across their 7,000 locations...

 

Therese's comment: Rumors are that Square has secured another $200 million, in addition to these $25 million from Starbucks http://www.businessweek.com/videos/2012-07-25/jack-dorsey-now-a-billionaire#r=related-rail-img

In any case Starbucks brings Square much more than money: huge visibility, credibility, distribution... Alliances are everything in the payment ecosystem. Well done !

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great infographic showing some capital easing. Capital is the oil that keeps our economic engine running. Have always loved the irony of locking out SMBs and entrepreneurs (and you and me) from capital assets after they were put at risk by others, but that is just the way the game is played in the "too big to fail" era.
