We’re Crowdfunding the VC App! Support the Future of Data Storytelling


This post is by Jeff Desjardins from Visual Capitalist


For over a decade we’ve stood for a world where data can be understood by everyone.

Over that time, we’ve built an audience of over 85 million annual visitors, and now more than 300,000 people get our free daily email.

But all of that is just scratching the surface of what’s possible.

Introducing the VC App

Today we’re unveiling our team’s most ambitious project yet and we need your help. We’re using Kickstarter to raise funds to build the VC App, to put all of the world’s best data storytelling at your fingertips.

The VC App will be the first app of its kind, combining verifiable and transparent data with beautiful, memorable visuals.

Not only will it include the thousands of visualizations we’ve already created and will be making in the future – but more importantly, it will empower data-driven creators from around the world to share stories through data about pretty much anything.

Our investment in Yavin’s €5M round for its smart payment terminal


This post is by Natasha Lytton from Seedcamp


FinTech + France = a winning combination. While financial services continues to be one of our most active sectors at Seedcamp, the wave of exceptional entrepreneurial talent emerging from France is also a trend that shows no signs of slowing down.

Just six months after leading their initial €1.2M round, we’re very excited to double down on our support in Alfred and Samuel, co-founders of Yavin, to supercharge their in-store payment platform and accelerate international development.

Yavin co-founders Alfred Bourély and Samuel Manassé

Founded in 2020, Yavin has been reinventing the in-store payment experience for local businesses. Co-founders Samuel Manassé (CEO), former CEO of SumUp challenger Smile&Pay, and Alfred Bourély (CTO) created Yavin to empower SMBs and help merchants get the best service, at the best price, while keeping freedom and control. With its no-commitment transparent offer, Yavin wants to free local shops from hidden fees and lock-in contracts of banks. For a monthly subscription fee, merchants can accept all payments (including contactless, QR-codes, crypto, pay-in-3, etc.), connect Yavin to their existing PoS system, and benefit from competitive transaction fees.

Samuel Manassé, CEO and Co-founder of Yavin, comments: “Merchants were forced to use outdated solutions for years. At Yavin, we are building with our customers and partners the in-store payment solution they have been waiting for. Payment will evolve enormously over the next few years. We will be at the side of merchants, so they can benefit from the next revolution”.

Yavin launched its first offer in France, bringing (Read more...)
