A Matheson team led by corporate M&A partners Brian McCloskey and George Brady and senior associate Robert Maloney Derham, is delighted to have advised Left Lane Capital and partners of DST Global on their Series A investment in Wayflyer Limited, alongside Goodwin Procter LLP.
Left Lane Capital, who led the $76 Million funding round in Wayflyer, is a venture capital and early growth equity firm with a focus on investing in high-growth internet and consumer technology businesses and DST Global is one of the leading Internet investment firms globally. Wayflyer is now one of Europe’s fastest growing fintech start-ups. Irish-headquartered and with offices in Dublin, London, New York and Sydney, Wayflyer helps eCommerce businesses worldwide reach their growth potential by providing a range of financing and analytics solutions that help them access working capital, improve cash flow and drive sales.
Robert Maloney Derham commented: “Left Lane Capital and DST Global are expert investors with a proven track record investing in high-growth online and data-driven businesses. This investment in Wayflyer, its founders and in Ireland, is another great example of how attractive Irish businesses are to international venture capital and private equity funds seeking to partner with businesses who are aiming to scale further internationally. It also signals the healthy eco-system of Irish founded companies with ambitious growth strategies which are increasingly catching the attention of serious international investors.”
