Fast-growing financial data platform and leader in modern connectivity honored in prestigious list of top emerging private fintech companies
NEW YORK, October 5, 2021 -- CB Insights today named MX to the fourth annual Fintech 250, a prestigious list of emerging private companies working on groundbreaking financial technology. This year’s list was unveiled on stage at CB Insights’ Future of Fintech conference in New York City.
MX was named alongside 23 other fintechs in the Core Banking & Infrastructure category.
“This is the fourth class of the Fintech 250, and it’s also the most international, representing 26 countries,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “These 250 fintech startups are attacking an incredibly diverse array of financial services opportunities across 19 sectors, including digital banking, insurance, payroll, retail investing, and more. After being named to the CB Insights Fintech 250 last year, the 2020 class saw 17 companies go public and 25 get acquired. They also went on to raise over $25B in additional financing and forged more than 380 new partnerships after being recognized. The Fintech 250 has a history of spotlighting the very best fintech companies, and this year is no different. We're excited to see how these fintech startups disrupt and transform financial services in the years ahead."
“We’re passionate about empowering the world financially as we continue to grow, nearly exponentially, under our premise that the proper utilization of transactional data will lead to massive changes in banking and fintech,” said Ryan Caldwell, founder and CEO of MX. “Our phenomenal employee base and thriving culture are helping us have a bigger impact than ever before. And with our industry-leading financial data platform and advancements in modern connectivity, the vision we mapped out 11 years ago to utilize the power of clean data to change the money experience for millions of people, through their financial institutions, is becoming a reality.”
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights Intelligence Unit selected the Fintech 250 from a pool of over 17,000 companies, including applicants and nominees. They were chosen based on several factors, including data submitted by the companies, company business models and momentum in the market, and Mosaic scores, CB Insights’ proprietary algorithm that measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies.
