‘Maveron’s deep consumer experience and courageous support of ambitious ventures make it an ideal partner PayNearMe as we advance our mission of enabling consumers to pay bills and more how, when and where they want.’


PayNearMe is the modern and reliable payments platform that enables businesses to accept cash, cards, ACH and mobile-first payment methods including Apple Pay and Google Pay – all with a single platform. Danny Shader initially started PayNearMe to help consumers who want to pay with cash, but lacked an organized network for doing so. Today, the PayNearMe platform facilitates every way consumers want to pay.

Danny is the quintessential serial entrepreneur, including exits with Accept.com and Good Technology. We’ve had a long relationship with him, and admire his gift for recognizing market opportunities and then executing on them. Danny likes to say that a startup fails only because it runs out of money or it runs out of heart—and that he won’t let either happen. We love that attitude and have been with him on the PayNearMe journey since 2010.
