Jared Leto, Shark Tank investor throw backing to rising Portland startup

Turns out PayRange has a pretty high profile group of investors in its $2.75 million funding round.

When the round was first revealed in federal filings earlier this summer, the only investor named was former head of Google Payments Osama Bedier. Now, new filings reveal that other investors include Anil Aggarwal and Jonathan Weiner, the founders of Money 20/20 conference, as well as Google Ventures.

There’s also Barbara Corcoran, one of the sharks on ABC’s “Shark Tank,” along with her firm’s Phil Nadel. Finally, PayRange has attracted an investment from Oscar-winning actor and musician Jared Leto.
