PayIt — named one of Startland’s 10 Kansas City Startups to Watch in 2018 — received the funding from a single investor, New York City-based, Insight Partners, Techcrunch reported.
The startup — which had previously raised $11 million — will use the money to expand its services into various government sectors and international markets, the digital tech magazine said.
Specializing in govtech/fintech applications that better connect government to its constituents, PayIt made news in 2018 thanks to major partnerships with the State of Kansas and the Unified Government of Kansas City, Kansas.
