Building great payment companies.

In a nutshell...

Argo is a company that believes in building simple and customer centric payments companies and products. Our passion is working hands on with motivated individuals to turn internal or external ideas into reality.

How we do it


First and foremost, we are builders at heart. This means taking an idea and growing it into a company. Our team of product, business, and technology experts make it a fun and prosperous experience.


Argo looks for strategic opportunities to buy established companies, this allows us to introduce them into the Argo Network to leverage mutual resources. The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts.


We believe in investing time, resources, and money in fanastic companies and ideas. However, we do not want to be hands off investors who simply send money - we want to supply knowledge, resources, and a little bit of elbow grease as well.
