THE FINTECH 250
It is a purely data-driven/algorithmic process that uses CB Insights data. We’ve gathered this data via our machine learning technology (dubbed The Cruncher) as well as via several thousand direct submissions from firms and individual professionals using The Editor.
The Company Mosaic page walks through the factors considered in the algorithm in some detail but at a high level, it considers several factors including:
Momentum – Considers non-traditional signals including news mentions, sentiment, jobs data/hiring, social media, web traffic and usage, partnerships, and more.
Market – Quantifies the health of the sector and industry the company is involved in, including funding, deals, exit activity, and hiring.
Money — Assesses financial signals including funding recency and total raised.
Investor quality – Weighs the quality of the investors participating in deals to the company, judging investors based on exits, returns, and portfolio quality.
The Fintech 250 is a list created by CB Insights recognizing the 250 top private companies changing the face of financial services around the world. From insurance to blockchain to lending to wealth management to regtech, and more; the list is comprised of companies in sectors from across the fintech spectrum and across markets.
