Nyca Partners, a leading fintech venture capital firm, announced that Tom Brown is joining as a Partner. In this role, Mr. Brown brings to Nyca decades of legal fintech experience and deep connections to companies in and around the payments industry. He will be involved in all facets of the business, from fund-raising to sourcing potential investments to helping existing portfolio companies grow and develop.
Mr. Brown was most recently in the San Francisco office of Paul Hastings, where he was a Partner over the past decade. He has been a prolific direct investor and advisor in the space, having invested or advised Upstart, Chime, Ramp, Mercury, Albert, Digit, and a host of others. He created and taught a class on payments at U.C. Berkeley Law School and, earlier in his career, was a Vice President at Visa where he served as the catalyst for the company’s reorganization.
“I’ve worked with Tom for almost two decades and there is just no question that he is one of the brightest, most insightful, and most innovative and resourceful people I have worked with in financial services. Is there anyone in the world who knows more about the history and development of the alternative payments ecosystem? Maybe, but I can’t think of one,” said Hans Morris, Managing Partner at Nyca. “All of our portfolio companies will benefit from his guidance, and given the decades he has spent deep in the weeds with fintechs, his ability to see around corners for both opportunities and hazards will be a major addition to Nyca.”
