Jack Dorsey’s Square Raises US$100m

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey’s technology company Square, which enables e-payments anywhere, has raised US$100m in Series C funding, valuing the company at more than US$1bn.

The marketplace for mobile device payments is beginning to open up and last week Google chairman Eric Schmidt said the market could be worth US$1trn within a few years as various platforms, including near field communications (NFC) and iOS-styled browser payments, make it easier and simpler for people to buy goods and services electronically.
