News provided by Share this article Share this article The selection to the Embedded Fintech 50 list by fintech investors showcases Papaya's successful transformation from an HR to a fintech platform. TEL AVIV, Israel, Feb. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ --  Papaya Global , the SaaS fintech company providing global payroll and payments technology, was named to the Embedded Fintech 50, a list launched by GGV Capital in partnership with Crunchbase, to recognize the most promising fintech companies in the eyes of startup investors. GGV Capital convened 57 investment firms to nominate and vote on the 50 honorees. Having raised more than $12 billion collectively, the Embedded Fintech 50 demonstrates the enthusiasm of venture capital investors in the growth and innovation of this sector. In celebration, honorees will ring the Closing Bell at the Nasdaq MarketSite today. "This important investor recognition from the fintech industry reinforces our goal of educating companies on the advantages of a fintech approach to global payroll and payments," said Eynat Guez, co-founder and CEO of Papaya. "Global payroll and payments are complex and as such need to be automated, visible at all times, fast and accurate. With our industry-leading capabilities of delivering payments within 72-hours, we are showing the power of embedded fintech within global payroll. What we're doing allows our enterprise clients to effectively and efficiently manage their global workforces." Despite a volatile market, 2022 was a year of strategic growth at Papaya. The company extended its capabilities through acquisition, built a world-class payment network, and strengthened strategic partnerships. Papaya acquired online remittance service, Azimo, and acquired international money transfer licenses to become the first global payroll platform with payroll payments natively embedded. It partnered with JPMorgan to establish the fastest payroll payments on the market. Papaya also integrated with Workday and Netsuite — leaders in HCM and ERP — to provide an embedded, end-to-end payroll and payment solution. These decisive moves led to the recognition in the Embedded Fintech 50 and affirmation from fintech startup investors. "Embedded fintech is a bright spot in today's market, and it is exciting to see how companies are democratizing access to financial services through technology," said Hans Tung, managing partner at GGV Capital. "We are excited for the continued development of the embedded fintech landscape and further creative innovations to come. Congratulations to the Embedded Fintech 50 honorees!"
