Ribbit Capital, founded in 2012, is a global venture capital firm focused on fintech (financial technology). As of 2015, Ribbit had raised $446 million, the fourth-largest amount of money raised among U.S-based venture capital firms started since 2012.
The firm was founded by Meyer 'Micky" Malka, a Venezuelan serial entrepreneur, who co-founded the online brokerage Patagon, which sold to Banco Santander SA for $750 million in 2000. In 2015, Malka was the only Latin American founder among the top 20 United States-based venture capital firms.
Ribbit focuses on technology companies involved in lending, payments, insurance, accounting, tax preparation and personal financial management. It generally invests between $2 million and $15 million in early stage financial start ups.
The firm also invested directly in bitcoin. In 2014, Ribbit, in concert with Social + Capital Partnership, was reported to control 5% of all bitcoins. Aside from direct investments in bitcoin, Ribbit has financed five bitcoin companies.
Ribbit's investors include SVB Capital, Silicon Valley Bank's fund of funds group; Sequoia Heritage; Spanish banking group Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S.A. and Iconiq Capital, a wealth management group whose clients include Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn. Individual investors include David Lawee of Google Capital and Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook.
