Vistara Capital Partners held the second close of its third technology debt fund, bringing the total raised to more than $100 million (US$75 million). Vistara Technology Growth Fund III, launched last October with a target of $130 million, is expected to reach its goal later this year, Managing Partner Randy Garg and Partner Noah Shipman told PE Hub Canada. The second close was anchored by two new institutions: the investment program of federal agency Export Development Canada and Nicola Wealth, a Canadian wealth management firm. Fund III will maintain Vistara’s strategy of providing flexible debt and equity financing for North American mid- to late-stage companies looking to fuel growth without diluting ownership.
Nubank, a Brazilian financial institution, has secured $400 million in Series F funding. TCV led the round with participation from return backers Tencent, DST Global, Sequoia Capital, Dragoneer, Ribbit Capital and Thrive Capital.
