NEW YORK--()--Inc. Magazine revealed that Synapse, the global banking-as-a-service platform that increases access to best-in-class financial products, is No. 1339 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the highest performing companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Synapse will join a host of successful companies that have been honored in previous years, including Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia and other well-known names which gained their first national accolade through the Inc. 5000 list.

“We are honored to be included on this year’s Inc. 5000 list, particularly as #92 overall in the financial services sector and #213 of California-headquartered companies,” said Sankaet Pathak, CEO and co-founder of Synapse Financial Technologies. “Our mission is to ensure everyone around the world has access to best-in-class financial products, regardless of their net worth. By making our platform accessible globally and empowering an industry of innovators who are making availability to financial services and financial health more accessible, more equitable and more sustainable, we can fulfill our mission at scale.”

Synapse’s record growth over the past three years has been powered by its mission-driven strategy, which seeks to address the critical needs of customers through its banking-as-a-service platform. Globally, more than 1.7 billion adults are underbanked and therefore have no access to earnings on savings or investments, credit or other tools to build financial health. Synapse is confident its business will continue to experience hyper growth as it is the only Banking-as-a-Service platform provider that enables companies across the globe to launch feature complete deposit, credit, and crypto products in weeks.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work and rising to the challenges of today.”

Synapse and its fellow honorees on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region and other criteria, can be found at The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.
