Pismo has been listed as one of the Top 100 Fintech Startups to Watch globally, a ranking carried out by the Dutch predictive intelligence company Dealroom.co. The list is based on the firm’s Dealroom Signal algorithm, which analyses companies that show strong traction and are lining up or round-ready for funding events.
The fintech start-ups listed operate in several sectors: payments, banking, lending and mortgages, financial management solutions, wealth management and investments, RegTech, crypto, decentralized finance, and tech enablers (AI, big data, and blockchain).
Besides Pismo, Cora – a digital bank for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that uses the Pismo platform to integrate its card management system with Visa – is another Brazilian company featured in the ranking.
Venture Capital targets
Dealroom.co chose to analyse the fintech scenery because it’s the biggest sector for Venture Capital funding, attracting 20% of all the investments. In 2021, fintech companies raised $128B in assets, which helped the number of fintech unicorns globally surpass 500.
The Dealroom Signal algorithm aims to surface the most promising startups with upcoming funding opportunities, based on their fundraising timeline, growth indicators, and founding team.
