Check announced this morning that it had completed a Series C investment round that will boost the company’s capital by $24 million.
This funding round was led by new investor Menlo Ventures, and included participation from current investors Morgenthaler Ventures and Pitango Venture Capital.
Check will put the capital to good use helping expand the business and grow the company’s role in making it easier for consumers to track, manage, and pay their bills. Said Check CEO, Guy Goldstein, “Americans make $4 trillion worth of bill payments per year, and Check is transforming the bill payment industry with a simple, fast, and easy-to-use mobile app.”
In addition to the funding, Check will also gain a pair of new board members. Doug Carlisle of Menlo Ventures will be joining the company’s board of directors, as will founder and former CEO of CompuCom, Avery More. This latest round puts Check’s total venture capital financing to date at $49 million.
Formerly Pageonce, Check is a leading innovator in the field of mobile payments. With nearly 10 million consumers using its mobile solution to pay bills and track finances, Check’s Bills & Money app is available as a free download from both the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
