Richard Branson Has Invested In Clinkle

Posted Sep 26, 2013

Billionaire investor and entrepreneur Richard Branson has invested in Clinkle. It is unknown what Clinkle does as a business, nor do we know how much Branson invested. The only hint we have about the service is that it involves mobile payments.


Clinkle previously raised a $25 million round in June. Clinkle launched a waiting list campaign for college campuses and they have hit over 100,000 students across the United States.

Schools that have the most students will get access to Clinkle first. Some of the schools that are at the top of the waiting list include Stanford University, the University of Michigan, and Duke University. Branson will serve as an adviser. Clinkle currently has 20 employees and now they have a total of 70 people.
