PayPal Helps Entrepreneurs With MetLife and Village Capital

By Ruby Hinchliffe

PayPal, venture capital firm Village Capital and financial health expert, MetLife Foundation, have come to together to launch Finance Forward – a global coalition to support fresh entrepreneurs.

The alliance will reach out to more than 100 fintech health entrepreneurs in the US, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and India, providing targeted business development support, grants, and equity.

Finance Forward will pour in $850,000 in capital through grants and direct investments, with an aim to drive at least $10 million in follow-on funding to program participants over the next five years.
