Marqeta Inc. may never be a household name, but its behind-the-scenes payments services have attracted plenty of attention. The fintech startup announced Tuesday that it is raising $45 million from investors including Iconiq Capital, the family office with investors including Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, and Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s investment bank. Marqeta, whose platform powers prepaid debit and credit cards, has been able to ride the wave of growth in the multi-trillion dollar payments market.
