“I’m thrilled to announce our partnership with Fintech Sandbox,” said Rachel Carpenter, Co-Founder and Vice President of Intrinio. “Intrinio was founded in response to many of the same challenges these financial technology startups face. We invented a solution that makes high quality financial data available at prices students, individuals, and startups can afford because we knew they were being priced out of the market. The companies working with Fintech Sandbox are inventing their own industry transforming technology, and we are excited to play a part in their success.”
“Intrinio shares FinTech Sandbox’s belief that highly qualified FinTech startups should have affordable access to financial data and resources,” stated Jean Donnelly, executive director of FinTech Sandbox. “Our residents are creating innovations that bring new efficiencies, speed, and flexibility to financial services - the same kind of benefits that Intrinio brings to the arena of financial data. This shared vision makes Intrinio an excellent partner for our startups.”
