Note from the Publisher: Look, we’re not saying that there aren’t already lots of brilliant and high-powered women in fintech, because there are, but if we were to guess, we’d still say that it’s’ got be at least a 4:1 male to female ratio within the sector at present, and probably lower. No research to back that number up – just a gut feel. But lately, we’ve been connecting with several high powered ladies in various sectors of the industry at large, and encouragingly, more and more on the coding and development side. So were were excited to learn about Intrinio Fintech Marketplace out of St. Petersburg, FL, a financial data provider with a number of unique financial data solutions for developers, co-founded by businesswoman Rachel Carpenter.
According to their recent press release……”Intrinio, based in St. Petersburg, FL, launched the Intrinio Fintech Marketplace this week with the goal of making financial data more affordable and easier to use for developers. Intrinio’s mission is to help investors save money and make time by making financial data affordable and easy to access, and their new platform is positioned to do just that. CEO Rachel Carpenter believes this platform will lead to the development of a new generation of financial tools.
Developers looking to build FinTech applications face two major hurdles,” says Carpenter. “First, traditional data providers are used to selling to massive institutions that have no other choices about where to buy their data- this leads to prices that keep most developers out of the market. Second, developers need financial data that is easy to use, data they can easily integrate into their apps. The Intrinio Fintech Marketplace clears both of these hurdles.'”
