The Chicago company declared it raised a $81 million Series C round headed by Goldman Sachs. Amount intends to spend the cash in scaling up its sales and marketing efforts, as well as research and development. The funding develops a string of recent growth announcements for Amount.
Last year, the Chicago Tribune reported the company was “aggressively hiring” software engineers and expanding its office space to meet increasing demand. In February, Amount officially turned out of its unicorn parent Avant, a seven-year-old fintech startup that gives digital credit rating services. In June, the company raised a $58 million Series B round.
