Portland, Ore. and San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
TFG Card Solutions (http://www.tfgcard.com), a pioneer in paperless payroll card solutions, has secured a $1.8 million investment which was led by Mosaik Partners (http://www.mosaikpartners.com), a leading venture capital firm focused on commerce-enabling technology companies. With the close of this Series “A” round of fundraising, TFG will aim to more than double its sales volume and grow market share.
"Payroll cards have proven to be the lifeblood for millions of people and families that are underbanked in this country,” said Miles Kilburn of Mosaik Partners. "We could not be more pleased to partner with TFG to accelerate the growth of its market leading payroll card products and services,” Kilburn added.
TFG’s payroll debit card solution can be integrated with any existing direct deposit system, bringing its time and cost savings to payroll managers, while allowing them to use existing infrastructure. By providing a superior alternative to paper checks, TFG’s payroll card program not only delivers value to the organization, but also provides a financial management tool to the unbanked and underbanked who, despite comprising nearly 30% of the U.S. population, have been largely ignored by traditional banking institutions.
“Mosaik Partners’ deep knowledge and experience in the payments space made them an ideal investment partner during this rapid growth phase in our business,” said Rick Holt, TFG’s CEO. “This capital will allow us to meet growing demand for our services with increased sales capacity, and tap additional market segments with operational and marketing programs that create savings and convenience for both the payroll provider and cardholder. We’re excited to build upon our core mission of delivering value to the client by providing the best possible benefit to the unbanked or underbanked cardholder.”
