And Kansas City is at the center of it all. Longstanding companies set a strong foundation that is giving rise to agile startups that are creating the next generation of Fintech.
Here are a few reasons Kansas City is a hub for Fintech:
BATS Global Markets | batsglobalmarkets.com BATS was founded in 2005 by a small group of Kansas Citians who wanted to create an alternative trading venue and introduce a little competition to the U.S. equities market. Today, it's one of the largest equities market operators in the U.S. and operates markets around the world.
Blooom | blooom.com Blooom simplifies and automates the process of managing your 401K. It's been called one of the world's 10 most innovative companies by Fast Company and nabbed press from Forbes, Wall Street Journal, Business Insider and more. In 2014, Blooom won Best of Show at the annual Finovate conference in New York. Long story short, this is just the beginning for Blooom.
C2FO | c2fo.com One of the first working capital markets in the world, C2FO has been growing like crazy in Kansas City since 2010. Forbes named C2FO to its Fintech 50 list in 2015, shortly after the firm officially marked its first week of more than 1 billion dollars in working capital volume.
DST Systems | dstsystems.com DST set the stage for Kansas City to become a leader in financial innovation when it introduced the first online mutual fund shareholder accounting system in the 1960s.
