General Catalyst Introduces $10 Million Fund to Enrich Stripe Platform

General Catalyst Partners (GC) introduced the GC Stripe Platform Fund, a program in which GC plans to invest $10 million in venture capital for market-changing businesses and applications built on the Stripe Connect platform. Stripe Connect enables businesses to connect their Stripe account (and their Stripe data) with other services: with a single click, a company can start selling on Twitter, integrate with their web analytics, or access their Stripe data on a mobile device. Applications built on Stripe Connect extend Stripe's capabilities, and overall make it better and more useful for users. The GC Stripe Platform Fund is geared primarily toward rapidly accelerating, seed-stage startups who need a capital infusion to sustain their momentum. Most investments will range from $250,000-$500,000.
