Square Said in Talks for Funding at $6 Billion Valuation

Square Inc., the mobile-payments startup co-founded by Twitter Inc. Chairman Jack Dorsey, is in talks to raise financing at a $6 billion valuation, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

The San Francisco-based company is seeking about $200 million, with some of the funding coming from the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. That would push Square’s valuation up from about $5 billion earlier this year.
