Snapdocs Named to the 2020 CB Insights Fintech 250 List of Fastest-Growing Fintech Startups
Snapdocs honored for achievements as the mortgage industry’s leading digital closing platform.
“We’re proud to, once again, recognize the 250 best private fintech companies globally. This year’s Fintech 250 represents 25 countries and spans 19 categories — reimagining everything from retail banking and crypto, to insurance and asset management,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “The previous Fintech 250 class raised more than $22 billion in investor financing and saw more than 20 exits after being recognized, and we expect this year’s class will have similar success as they continue to transform how people and businesses spend, save, borrow, and invest their money.”
“We’re honored to be recognized alongside such an impressive collection of companies,” said Aaron King, CEO and founder of Snapdocs. “We provide remarkable efficiencies for the companies that make homeownership possible and a beautiful experience for the borrowers celebrating this milestone achievement in life. Without a true partnership from our customers, recognition like this wouldn’t be possible. I’d like to thank each of our customers for innovating with us; they’re the ones who truly made this list.”
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights Intelligence Unit selected the Fintech 250 from a pool of 16,000 companies, including applicants and nominees, based on several factors. These factors include patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.
