Fintech List 2022

While banking is historically one of the stodgiest systems, it has yielded some of the world’s greatest disruptors like Stripe and Robinhood. For our second annual fintech list, we set out to identify the next generation of financial trailblazers. We convened a panel of industry experts with backgrounds ranging from Index Ventures to Square Capital to determine the top thirty fintechs Seed through Series D. As the ‘post-pandemic reset’ rattles the tech world, the strongest startups are rising to the surface — here’s a peek into who are likely to be the cream of the crop in fintech.
