Draper Associates has a history of backing world-class entrepreneurs enabling or disrupting businesses in the $10’s billions. Draper Associates was impressed by the fact that Karmic can enable SMBs, enterprises, and organizations to intelligently deploy spend cards and have complete control through an easy to use, unified backend for dynamic management. As merchants adopt new payment technologies (chip and pin, NFC, QR Codes, etc.), Karmic can instantly scale and deliver the same value with no additional cost to the end user. This creates a strong link for the customer, creating strong barriers, exactly the types of business we love backing here at Draper Associates.
