New York-based Ramp, a corporate card and expense automation platform, raised $300 million at a $5.8 billion post-money valuation — a 28% drop from its previous valuation.

The new cash comes just 15 months after the fintech startup raised $750 million in debt and equity in a financing that set a valuation of $8.1 billion.

Thrive Capital, Sands Capital, General Catalyst, Founders Fund and other existing investors participated in the new financing.

“Ramp has never been in a stronger position to provide value to finance teams and those seeking to build better businesses, and we’re excited to increase our pace,” CEO Eric Glyman wrote in a blog.

Down rounds and valuation drops

Ramp joins the growing list of startups that have had to face the new realities of the private market after a record-shattering run.

Many startups have had to recalibrate their valuations as investors have pulled back on funding and put more value on profitability and cash flow.

Large private companies such as Klarna and Stripe also have raised down rounds as the venture market has continued to slow since its highs of 2021. Just last month, Atlanta-based OneTrust became one of the latest unicorns to raise a down round, as it locked up a $150 million round at a $4.5 billion valuation — a 12% drop from the $5.1 billion valuation the privacy and security startup garnered after it raised a Series C in late 2020.
