Who We Are

FinTech Sandbox is a nonprofit that is the place for all things data. We were started by a group of FinTech entrepreneurs and investors in Boston who recognized that the high cost and/or inaccessibility of data posed a consistent challenge to FinTech startups. Backed by some of the world’s leading financial institutions, data providers and venture capitalists, we are united in our goal to help FinTech entrepreneurs build great products.

While the community is the lifeblood of FinTech Sandbox, we rely on a committed group of Board members, advisors, team members and advocates who help us make FinTech Sandbox a reality:
