Euromoney TRADEDATA will provide data to promising startups selected by FinTech Sandbox for use in the development and testing of a wide range of exciting and transformational products and services.
Nonprofit FinTech Sandbox promotes innovation in the financial sector by making data and infrastructure available to well-qualified FinTech startups at the point when access is most impactful. Sandbox startups, in return, collaborate with current and past residents, sharing learnings and advancements that benefit the FinTech ecosystem. Participating startups pay no fees and no equity is taken.
Euromoney TRADEDATA is making four data products available to FinTech Sandbox participants via API:
According to Mark Woolfenden, Euromoney TRADEDATA Managing Director, “Had we not been innovative in our technology and operating procedures, Euromoney TRADEDATA would not be here in its present form today. We recognise the critical importance of freedom and agility to create and sustain value, from humble beginnings to becoming a strategically important vendor. Euromoney TRADEDATA has lived the dream and wants to share its experience for others to benefit from.”
“Euromoney TRADEDATA knows how quickly operating practices and technologies evolve,” added Jean Donnelly, Executive Director of FinTech Sandbox. “I am excited they’ve chosen us to help them share their learnings and experiences – as well as their data – with a new generation of global startups.”
