New York, NY, October 22, 2018 -- CB Insights today named Silverfin to the second annual Fintech 250 list, a prestigious group of emerging private companies working on groundbreaking financial technology.
“After we named the inaugural Fintech 250 in 2017, they went on to raise $23B including 30 rounds of over $100 million. 22 of the Fintech 250 have already exited with half via IPO. This year, we've added 113 new companies to the Fintech 250 using the CB Insights Mosaic algorithm, and the group is broad, covering everything from insurance tech to consumer banking to capital markets tech. We look forward to the success of this year's group,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal.
The CB Insights research team selected the Fintech 250 companies based on several factors including data submitted by each company and their Mosaic Score. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies. Through this evidence-based, statistically-driven approach, the Mosaic Score can help predict a company’s momentum, market health and financial viability.
Starting today, CB Insights customers can view the Fintech 250 on Stories, the newest product feature allowing teams to easily create beautiful presentations powered by real-time data visualizations.
