SupportPay by Ittavi, a Sacramento, CA-based child support payment startup, raised $4.1m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Fenway Summer Ventures with participation from Moneta Ventures, Continental Advisors, and previous investors. In conjunction with the funding, Javier Saade, Managing Director at Fenway Summer Ventures and Paul Purcell, co-Founder and Partner at Continental Advisors joined SupportPay’s Board of Directors.
The company, which has raised over $7m since 2014, will use the funds to expand its team as well as ramp up marketing efforts to further its reach to parents, family law professionals, and government agencies across the country.
