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.
“Our role as a driving force behind digital business payments adoption is evident in our fast-growing transaction volume, the scale of our network and the quality relationships we’ve built with the nation’s leading banks and accounting firms,” said René Lacerte, Founder and CEO of Bill.com. “We’re honored to be recognized for the efficiency, simplicity and control we provide businesses for their vendor payments.”
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.
