In a round led by D1 Capital Partners, cloud-based digital banking technology platform Alkami has secured $140 million in new funding. The investment takes the company’s total capital to more than $378 million and comes as the firm reaches nearly 10 million digital users under contract.
“We are proud to add world class crossover investors to our strong existing investor base, supporting Alkami’s mission,” company CEO Mike Hansen said. “We inspire and power the digital strategies of financial institutions as they seek to grow confidently and build thriving digital communities.”
Also participating in the venture round were Fidelity Management & Research Company, Franklin Templeton, and Stockbridge Investors.
The financing also comes just a few weeks after the company learned it had made CB Insights roster of top 250 fastest-growing fintechs. This year’s cohort was selected out of a pool of 16,000 companies. Also this month, Alkami topped $130 million in annual recurring revenue under contract, as the company onboarded its 165th digital banking platform client.
“Our clients are among the best performing and fastest growing FIs in the country, in part due to the strength and velocity of our platform, solutions, and ecosystem,” Hansen added. “Together we are creating and delivering winning digital solutions to our clients’ customers, members, and businesses.”
Last month, Alkami announced that it had teamed up with fellow Finovate, multiple Best of Show winner Glia, integrating its Digital Customer Service platform as part of Alkami’s suite of online offerings. “With Glia, banks and credit unions can break down the walls of traditional customer support by meeting customers online and guiding them to quick and satisfying resolutions,” Glia co-founder and CEO Daniel Michaeli said. “By partnering with Alkami, we are making digital-first customer service more easily accessible to premier financial institutions and their users.”
Headquartered in Plano, Texas, Alkami is among Finovate’s oldest alums, demonstrating its technology as iThryv back in 2009.
