FinTech Collective is a venture capital firm, based in New York City and investing globally. Our ambition is to create the future of financial services, bringing transparency and choice to developed markets and financial connectivity and socio-economic mobility to developing markets. The firm was founded in 2012 by serial entrepreneurs with exits in capital markets, payments and enterprise AI. Since inception, FinTech Collective has seeded 30 companies including Axoni, Dharma Protocol, Embroker, MoneyLion, and Vestwell. Exits include Quovo (acquired by Plaid), Openfolio (acquired by Stone Ridge Asset Management), Reorg (acquired by Warburg Pincus) and Slide (acquired by Raise). The firm is currently investing out of its second fund, a $100m+ early-stage fund with a focus on capital markets, wealth and asset management, banking-lending-payments, and insurance. The firm actively invests in decentralized finance (“defi”) opportunities across these segments. We publish a weekly newsletter, delivered every Saturday and providing a tightly edited rundown of global fintech news, along with a bit of our original analysis (available at fintech.io/newsletter).
