The founders of Tpaga launched Tappsi, a Colombian ride-hailing services, in 2012 to offer a safer taxi option for urban residents and visitors.
Tpaga expands that service with a mobile wallet that gives Colombia’s unbanked taxi drivers and other adults a cashless payment option. Tappsi’s 50,000 taxi drivers are the first Tpaga users.
Tpaga developed the wallet as part of Y Combinator’s Summer 2017 cohort and launched it at the start of October.
Green Visor Capital in San Francisco, a fintech venture capital firm, invested $2.2 million.
