Notching an $8.1 billion valuation just three years after being founded is striking, even for a tech startup. While many fintech companies struggled last year, Ramp’s meteoric rise accelerated. The business-expense-software firm saw revenues quadruple as its customers looked to stay lean through inflation. Ramp’s Visa cards are tied to employer-set policies, so employees instantly know if charges are approved; reports and receipts aren’t always needed.
