Congratulations to portfolio companies CapIntel, CoinLedger and Willa for being featured in Business Insider's list of the 61 most promising early-stage fintech companies. As was the case last year, the majority of those nominated work with other businesses, not individual consumers. Many investors noted B2B startups are one of the biggest bright spots in the sector as businesses and financial institutions continue to streamline their processes and cut costs where they can.
"Willa is on a mission to power the future of work and become the financial OS for creators — a market that represents some 60 million people who contributed $1.3 trillion to the US economy last year alone," said Sarah Parsons Wolter, a principal at FinTech Collective. "The team's first product allows agencies to pay on their own terms, while influencers can receive payment of their invoice in 30 seconds or less for a small fee."
