The Mercury 2021 Recap
Another year is winding down and we’re reflecting on some of our favorite moments of 2021. We’re grateful to have had our customers with us along the way.
2021 in numbers
This year, Mercury...
- Raised a $120M Series B at a $1.6B valuation
- Sent over 137,000 wires around the world*
- Issued more than 8,000 debit cards*
- Our new Android app has over 5,000 downloads so far
- Over $19M raised by startups in Mercury Raise
- Had over 63,000 companies use Mercury
We built new things
Capital Guide connects founders to financing recommendations.
- About $10M has already been funded to founders since November
Our Investor Database helps founders build their investor pipeline.
We especially like how Immad’s profile looks.

- 21 companies attended our first Raise A event in October
Your team can operate how you want it to with card only user permission tiers and auto transfers. And all your Android teammates can join the work-from-phone club, too.
Plus, we launched our startup and ecommerce guides to help you think through tough questions like splitting equity between founders.
And we made some great product updates:
We added read-only tokens to our API. Zapierintegrations let you connect your favorite third-party apps. Customize your debit card by adding your business name. Enjoy improved transactions details and enable monthly transaction limits. Use our iOS app for domestic wires and get push notifications on important changes.
Thank you for all the feedback and support that has helped us keep building.
You also built new things
We're happy to celebrate with you.
Graviti is getting necessary home appliances to unbanked LatAm populations. Tag raised Pakistan’s largest seed round of $12M at a $100M valuation. Raycast was #1 product of the day on ProductHunt.
And it’s all from a strong foundation
We now have 201 Mercury employees in 39 cities, including San Francisco, NYC, Portland, Toronto, Nashville, and even Copenhagen.
Every employee gets a unique callsign. This year 119 new callsigns were given.
...and we’re all listening to the holiday album our teammates made to celebrate.
Each employee also gets a wellness budget. Here are some things we spent it on:
We had four hackdays this year: We built a site to showcase how we think about design, created a demo of our full product suite, and even made high-caliber cross stitches.
And we really enjoy pets.

We’re proud of our community and team for everything we’ve accomplished together. And we’re excited for what’s to come: more ways for founders to access capital, more nuanced card management, and many more surprises.
