Personal finance site Mint.com raked in another $14 million in funding, bringing its total to $31 million. The round was led by DAG Ventures, with new financing from Founders Fund and a top-up from existing investors Benchmark Capital, Shasta Ventures, First Round Capital and Sherpalo.
Although the valuation wasn’t released, “it is a decidedly up-round” and it was “pre-emptive,” meaning Mint.com didn’t raise the funding because it was running out of cash. The company now has 1.4 million registered users, up from 1 million in March and is tracking $175 billion in transactions, $47 billion in assets and has identified $300 million in potential savings for its users. Revenue is eight times what it was last year, according to CEO Aaron Patzer.
