While Colorado isn’t exactly Wall Street, we do have our fair share of fintech companies helping consumers and businesses manage, make and even spend their money. Here are nine Colorado players — some new, some old — to keep an eye on:

maxell fintech company colorado
Maxwell

Denver-based Maxwell empowers mortgage professionals by automating their workflow with homebuyers and realtors. The company’s SaaS platform enhances relationships with mortgage lenders and their customers through data integrity, online collaboration and process automation. Since its inception in 2015, Maxwell has closed over $7 billion in loans more efficiently.

SALT Lending allows for holders of blockchain to leverage their assets as collateral for cash loans.

Started in 2016 in Denver, SALT Lending helps investors leverage blockchain by offering competitive interest rates and the freedom to get cash back at any moment.

Denver-based Eave is all about accuracy and efficiency when it comes to mortgages. With Eave’s approval process, most mortgages are approved after only 48 hours, with the closing process taking half the time of a traditional mortgage company.

ondeck fintech company colorado
ondeck

OnDeck helps small businesses thrive. They work with businesses from all industries — not just tech startups — to offer a wide range of products, from short-term loans to lines of credit up to $100,000. The Denver company has delivered $5 billion in loans to small businesses since it got its start in 2007. Companies can apply online, and their system offers a decision in minutes, with no obligation.

 

personal capital fintech company colorado
personal capital

Personal Capital has their headquarters in California, but their Dever presence is just as big. The company’s app allows consumers to track their net worth, transactions and investment portfolios. They even offer a service where users can work directly with an investment advisor to build better portfolios. As of June 2018, the company has more than 1.8 million users on their app, tracking $480 billion in assets — and they’re managing nearly $7 billion in assets for their investment clients.

 

commerce sync fintech company colorado
commerce sync

Commerce Sync creates automated accounting software for small businesses. It pulls sales data from point of sale and online storefront systems, then allows consumers to pull reports on all aspects of the company’s accounting. They have more than 10,000 customers, from coffee shops to golf courses. And their software integrates with some of the major players in small business sales, including Square and Quickbooks.

 

 billgo fintech company colorado
billgo

Fort Collins-based BillGO lets users split and pay their bills all through their app. Created out of a need for multiple tenants to pay rent to their landlord, the app works with banks and credit cards to allow users to pay any bill they need. Got a bill in the mail? Simply take a picture, and BillGO will take care of the rest. After testing the product with students at Colorado State University, the app is now available on Android and iOS — and they have a Facebook Messenger chatbot, too.

 

tokken fintech company colorado
tokken

Denver’s Tokken aims to make it simpler and safer for people to purchase legal cannabis. The company’s platform offers digital currency, called tokkens, that consumers can use to purchase product from retailers. Those retailers receive the tokkens, which the company uses to manage their funds in a bank. Tokken is currently testing their platform with retailers, but they expect to release consumer apps later this year.
