New research from CB Insights shows Google Ventures is the most active big tech investor in fintech. Since 2016, Google Ventures has made 45 investments in firms like Stripe and Oscar. Along with Andreessen Horowitz, General Catalyst, and Sequoia Capital, Google invested in Stripe’s $600 million round in April of 2020, for example. It also participated in digital health insurance firm Oscar’s $400 million round in 2016.
