🤝 About Us

Archie is building the financial infrastructure for the future of work. We’re starting by building a finance automation platform for businesses in the hospitality and events space (think Coachella, Soho House, The Ned, Public Hotels). Over the past 12 months we’ve grown our payments volume by 16x and raised $4.5M in seed funding from B Capital Group, Notation Capital, MaC, and the founders of Ramp, Capchase, 8sleep, NuvoCargo, Blank Street, Lambda School, and many more. We’re a small team on a BIG mission and we come from Meta, Palantir, Google, Thrasio, and ZocDoc. If you are passionate about building payments/financial products and staying up to date with the latest developments in the field, we’d love to hear from you!
