Q&A WITH FOUNDER

Paybby was founded to support full access to the benefits of banking to the Black, Brown, and communities of color.

The focus of Paybby is on communities that have lower banking density and high parts of the population that lack trust in traditional banks.  This is most prevalent in the Black and Brown communities.

Paybby technology and products are being designed to increase access to bank accounts and other banking services in communities of color.  For example, bank account approvals can be lower among people that rent vs own because of government ID inconsistencies.  Paybby will work to improve KYC and increase approval rates.  Paybby marketing and financial management tools are targeted at the needs of communities of color.  We see this as different from other NeoBanks that cater to the broader market.

Paybby currently offers the Wicket mobile banking App that provides a deposit and savings account with intelligent financial management tools.  Users of Wicket can get paid up to 2 days early on direct deposits from employers and government pay.  Additionally, Paybby is a PPP loan marketing agent targeting small businesses to apply for a loan that is processed by SBA-approved lenders.

The current plan is to offer cross-border remittance services with an inexpensive and convenient way for immigrants to send money to their families.  A significant portion of communities of color has family in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia.

Paybby will expand to a full range of banking services including business accounts, consumer loans, mortgage lending, and investment products such as cryptocurrency savings accounts.  Users of Paybby will get the smartest banking tools that will make financial management easy and fun.

The Black and Brown community is over 100 million people and the fastest-growing segment of the US population.  Paybby is a technology company driven by data analysis and artificial intelligence that will develop the best understanding of the community's needs.  By building trust with the community, the users will support company's products and services and provide feedback to keep Paybby in the lead.

Hi Jack, I would love to invest and I'm okay with $20M valuation being a tech neo bank but not as a common stock holder. Many companies with larger valuation and revenue offer Preferred Equity through Crowd funding and I've invested in 100's of companies. Being in a seed stage for the risk you need to offer Preferred stocks and better terms.

Hi Esi, the share price was calculated using a $20M pre-money valuation and a $1.07M raise. The relative percentages give the number of shares. The $1.07M raise / the number of shares gives the share price. Our direct competitors have used valuations of $25M+ (MoCaFi, First Boulevard) for recent equity raises and Greenwood Bank was valued at $180M after their raise of $40M. Paybby feels that the valuation is competitive, especially given the fact that Paybby has the only LIVE digital banking app targeted at the Black and Brown communities! Let me know if there are any further questions.
