Fintech Fundings: 17 Companies Raise $242 Million in Week Ending Sep 26

It was another stellar week in fintech fundings, simultaneously providing ammunition to those that think that private investments have peaked, while proving that it has not. The total included 2 Finovate alums: Bionym, which picked up $14 million and is scheduled to speak at FinDEVr next week and Taulia ($13 mil). Overall, the week saw 17 companies rack up a total of $242 million. 
For the month of September, a total of $770 million went into the sector (or about $600 million if you don’t classify Radius ($55 million) or Strategic Funding Source ($110 million) as fintech companies). That’s a $10 billion annual run rate.
