Austin-based fintech startup, Routefusion has successfully bagged a $3.6 million seed fund led by venture capital firm Silverton Partners along with other participants such as NextWorld Capital, Initialized Capital and Plaid Co-Founder William Hockey.

Elaborating on the firm’s vision, Colton Seal, CEO and co-founder, Routefusion, stated that their roadmap for 2021 includes executing close to 12 global partnerships, doubling headcount, and offering improved customer service to clients. 

Meanwhile, Roger Chen, Partner at Silverton, commented that their team is elated to lead the recent funding round and partner with Routefusion to build the future of fintech. The vision of Routefusion’s team for the future of embedded cross-border payments is inspirational.

Expressing similar views, Andrew Lee, Partner at Initialized Capital, said that Routefusion is on the path to great success and in the past few years, the company has grown into a multi-million dollar business with an impressive client roster.
