Dutch online payments firm Adyen has snagged a $2.3 billion valuation after a funding round from a secretive personal wealth management company that counts Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg among its clients.
Adyen is the Netherlands' only "unicorn" – a technology company valued over $1 billion – and processes payments for social media hubs such as Facebook, Netflix and Spotify.
The start-up did not disclose the amount of money it raised, but said the funding round was aimed at bringing key investors on board—namely Iconiq Capital, which has poured the money into Adyen.
Iconiq is a highly secretive wealth management firm that manages mo investments for the likes of Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg, LinkedIn CEO Reid Hoffman and interim Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. It's run by Divesh Makan, a former Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley banker.
