Javier Perez, Former President of Mastercard Europe, has launched Global PayTech Ventures, a venture capital firm focused exclusively on payment technology.
GPT will invest in paytech startups with differentiated technologies that meet massive market demand within the payments ecosystem.
Founded by Javier Perez and his sons, Daniel Perez and Kristofer (‘Kriffy’) Perez, the firm focuses on early stage paytech companies usually looking to raise seed, Series A, or Series B rounds where they can fund a portion of the round with the opportunity to provide guidance and influence strategic direction.
With a lifelong career in the payments industry, including nearly two decades as President of Mastercard Europe, Javier Perez is a globally-recognized expert at developing innovative paytech concepts and bringing them to market. Javier’s global network of industry contacts is extensive and can provide tremendous value to GPT’s partner companies.
