Thrive Global, a NYC-based behavior change technology company, raised $80m in Series C funding.
The round was co-led by Mamoon Hamid at Kleiner Perkins and Owl Ventures with participation from existing institutional shareholders IVP and JAZZ Venture Partners, as well as a new investment from funds managed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management. In conjunction with the funding, Hamid will join Thrive’s Board of Directors along with Ian Chiu, Managing Director at Owl.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations and its reach.
